Preparing your child for summer camp is part of the overall camp experience – so we encourage you to take the time necessary with your camper.
Before arriving at camp for the summer, we recommend that take a look at the Activities Pages on this website with your
In combination with each of the specific camp programs offered, each camper will choose with their registration their top two activities that they would like to participate in daily while at camp.
All activity choices will be finalized once your child is at camp. This gives your camper the opportunity to change their choice based on weather, scheduling conflicts, friend’s choices, instructors, etc.
If your camper is bringing hockey equipment, please ensure all items are properly labelled, fit correctly and that hockey skates are sharpened.
The camp has a lost and found system. Most lost and found items are not recognized by campers as their own, so labelling is important. Parents have an opportunity to look over any lost and found gathered from the week during Saturday Check Out.
Although the following safety items will be discussed with campers upon arrival, we recommend that you talk about health and safety issues with your kids, including:
All personal belongings, clothing and equipment should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
If you require labels, please contact Mabel Labels. Visit Mabel Labels Website
There are certain things that are not allowed at camp, including cell phones, expensive electronic equipment and food products with nuts. HOC is not responsible for lost or stolen items brought to camp.
We ask that you have a discussion with your child and make sure that he/she understands HOC Camper Guidelines before arriving at camp.
We recommend that your child helps pack their gear and clothing so that he/she is aware of what is being brought and what they are expected to pack to bring back home. For a complete packing list, please read your camper(s) program specific HOC Handbook. For an organized packing experience visit our Cubby Cubes 2017 page for some camp durable packing bags.
