NEWLY REVAMPED WATER SKI PROGRAM & AGE GROUP FOR 2022!
Campers who may have participated in the water ski and wake sports activity at HOC (or elsewhere) may find themselves wanting to spend more time on the water fine-tuning these skills within this specialized Overnight Water Ski Program.
The Overnight Water Ski Program is perfect for any male or female camper wanting more training on the water and who is ready to challenge themselves to master their favourite water ski or wake sports skills or even learn new ones from our certified instructors.
Water ski/wake sport disciplines include Two Ski, Slalom, Wakeboarding, Wakeskating, Wakesurfing, Knee Boarding and even Barefooting!
In an effort to keep up with the demand of Water Skiing/Wake Sports here at HOC, our specialized Overnight Water Ski Program is being offered for all summer camp weeks. NEW for 2022, we have lowered the minimum age requirement for this program to include campers currently in Grade 4, or who will have turned 9 by December 31, 2021. This will create a fourth age group for the program. Each age group includes a maximum of 6 campers, allowing for personalized instruction time.
Campers are on the water 3 hours per day, Monday-Friday. Each group gets some time each day in their own boat with two nationally certified instructors. This means there is lots of one-on-one teaching and practice time for each camper. In addition to this ski time, campers get to take part in one additional chosen land or water camp activities.
Both extensive on-water training time and certified instructors help participants achieve advanced level instruction in all disciplines. Campers work toward their award levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold).
Campers may have the option to bunk with any friends attending the same week, providing their friends are within one grade or birth year and program enrollment allow the accommodation.
In addition to their water ski program, campers participate daily in one chosen land or water-based camp activity. Each activity has a series of skill progressions taught each day and campers work towards levels or awards within the activity. No prior experience is required for any camp activity. Our highly trained instructional staff will ensure campers are taught the necessary skills and safety measures required for individual success.
Campers have the opportunity to sign up for their preferred land or water activity when they register online, but activities are confirmed on check-in day. Click the Camp Activities link below to learn more about HOC's exciting camp activity options.
Using the latest high-definition video equipment, instructors will take videos of each camper as they are on the water, learning the water ski discipline of their choice. This video will then be analyzed and feedback provided in order to best instruct campers in the program.
As part of our newly revamped program, we are introducing our Water Ski Program campers to our WellFit Training Activity (see the link to features below). This new training activity feature offers campers a new unique dimension to summer camp programming.
Campers will have a choice to participate in one of two of our WellFit Training activity options - Fitness Training or Wellness Training. Allowing campers to choose the right program that suits their individual needs and interests.
Many of our campers who are interested in staying longer than one week, enjoy combining programs at camp for the full experience. Campers like to combine one week of our Overnight Water Ski Program with one week of either our Overnight Hockey or Overnight Ultimate Camp programs.
