Sports School and Aquatics Camps

We will keep your camper moving and active, all day in one of our Sports School or Aquatics Camps! Campers will be exposed to a variety of new and familiar sports, develop skills, and have fun in a safe and supportive environment. We encourage campers to take risks in trying new things and to push themselves as they develop as an athlete. From basketball, cricket, volleyball, flag football or rugby to experiencing the indoor rowing tank, swimming pool, archery, racquet sports, tchoukball, wallyball or ultimate frisbee! The fun never stops, and we can almost guarantee a good night’s sleep after a day at Sports School! Join the Aquatic staff for our popular and small group aquatic camps. If your child loves the water, they can choose from Junior Lifeguard, Synchronized Swimming, Lifesaving Sport FUNdamentals or Springboard Diving. Choosing AquaSport means they can try a bit of everything.
