HOC is an excellent choice for parents looking for a traditional summer camp experience in beautiful Northern Ontario, with “best in class” hockey training and a variety of exciting activities for their children to enjoy.
Each camp session is a minimum of one week-long, making it an affordable and safe option for campers who have never attended camp before.
All campers are dropped off at camp on Sunday, giving parents an opportunity to see, first hand, where their child(ren) will be spending the week.
Parents also have the opportunity to meet the many staff members that will be a part of their child’s week at camp including, directors, health care staff, counselors, activity and hockey instructors.
For parents of hockey campers, when they pick-up their child(ren) on Saturday, they have an opportunity to see their camper play a hockey scrimmage game. (Ranger and Senior scrimmages take place Friday night).
Your child will be in a cabin with a total of 8-10 campers. We try and ensure that campers bunking together are all within one grade level of each other. Note Summer 2021: At this time, due to the implications of Covid-19, we opened registration for 2021 at 50% capacity and therefore reducing/limiting cabin capacities.
We provide family-style, all you can eat meals prepared with highly nutritious fresh food. GB Catering, our hired catering company, can accommodate many different kinds of food allergies. We would be happy to discuss your camper's allergy in more detail and discuss the exact menu that will be served the week your child will be at camp.
Our Tuck Shop & Kitchen also do not stock any products that contain visible nuts or nut products.
Your child will be supervised at all times by our caring and well-trained staff. Our counsellors sleep in a separate room within the cabin with the campers. Various staff members can be used as resources for your camper while at camp, giving them the confidence to address questions or concerns immediately.
Hockey Opportunity Camp supplies all the required equipment for each camp activity, including bikes and helmets. Hockey campers are required to bring all their own personal hockey gear.
After registering your child you will receive a detailed checklists of everything your child will need to bring camp. Click the link to view your camper's program-specific HOC Handbook for more specific camp details.
To stay in touch with your campers, we post daily photographs of camp life for you to browse and you can email your child (one-way email) while they are at camp. Learn More >>
