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.


Hockey Opportunity Summer Camp, Ontario


We make summer camp easy for your campers... and you.

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).

Campers are grouped age appropriately.

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.

Meals are family style... campers can eat as much food as they want!

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 campers 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.

Our staff is the very best.

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.

  • You’ve got a great program, so thank you. Not only has it helped my son round out as a person and gain self confidence, but as far as hockey goes, he made a successful transition in the jump to Peewee this season, as well as in stepping up from what we call Tier 2 (AA/A) hockey, to a nationally competitive AAA elite hockey team with a very short bench.

  • I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for providing my son with an amazing experience. Cody had the time of his life last week, and with that we will be returning next year for another exciting summer.
