If you are between 7 and 16 years of age, and want a summer camp that you and your friends can enjoy, Hockey Opportunity Camp (HOC) is the perfect place for you.
Hockey Opportunity Camp (HOC) is a unique combination of “best in class” hockey training and traditional overnight summer camp experience in Northern Ontario. HOC is an Ontario Camps Association (OCA) accredited camp.
With any program you choose, you’ll be sure to learn new skills within the activities you choose, create lasting new friendships, meet awesome counsellors that really care and express your independence in a safe and fun environment.
We have approximately 240 camper spots available each week of camp, 30 of these spots are reserved for our Senior Camp (older campers) and they fill up very quickly. Note: We will open 2021 registration based on a 50% enrollment capacity. This will ensure we have the flexibility to adjust to any future Public Health and Province of Ontario restrictions and physical distancing guidelines that may be implemented for the 2021 season. Capacity maximums will be re-evaluated as restrictions/guidelines are changed/updated.
Whether you are coming on your own or with a friend or in a large group, you’ll be comforted to know that you’ll be placed in a cabin and section with other campers your own age. Campers live in cabins with 8 – 10 other campers.
Many of our campers who come in a group are members of a hockey team who wish to train together or friends who love hockey and want to share a summer camp experience.
Don’t worry if your level of hockey experience is different from your friends. HOC is for all levels and our campers represent the full spectrum of skill level from House League to AAA Rep.
Players are divided on the ice into one of four-player ability groups (each group given different hockey jersey colour). Our experienced instructors challenge each camper at their own pace and help campers progress through their own personal skill development.
