SUMMER CAMPS

Our summer camps are developed with your family in mind. Our camps are aimed at providing your family with excellent summer programming at an affordable rate. Our camps are co-ed and are offered for children ages 4 to 13. On each day your child can expect a morning of sports, a healthy snack, a team talk, and an afternoon that may include off site trips and camp activities. Each week will end with your child experiencing an offsite trip for the entire day. We provide a 6 to 1 camper to staff ratio and our leaders are trained to provide your child a fun and safe experience. Registration is now closed.  See you next summer!

ICE HOCKEY CAMP

We are excited to offer your child a unique on ice, hockey camp designed to not only teach and develop your child’s hockey skills, but to teach your child much more! Our camps use the game of hockey to teach your child valuable lessons on leadership and personal character all taught from a Christian perspective.  Our instructors and coaches have played at all levels (including Junior and Professional) and are committed to seeing your child develop their on-ice abilities.  As we are hoping to use this camp to teach and develop not only your child’s hockey abilities, but also their leadership skills, all players will have to agree to our “Player Code of Conduct.” Registration is now closed. See you next summer!

SOCCER

Our soccer leagues are fun, co-ed, and recreational. Families can relax while their children play at one location on one night of the week. Our seasons run from the end of May to the end of July. Each child will receive a jersey, socks, end-of-year award and a set of individual personalized soccer cards. Our leagues are open to new and experienced players alike. Each league is sponsored by a local church within your community. Our volunteer coaching team pursues excellence in soccer, and in life, and looks forward to working with your child this summer.
