    Check-In Process
    Parent- 2022 (Parent)

    This was our first year at HOC and we were blown away by the process on arrival. It's reassuring to know that you are leaving your child in such good hands with solid processes and policies in place.

    Great Camp for New Campers
    Parent- 2019 (Parent)

    I continue to promote HOC as a great place to send your kids- especially those who have never been away before. We've had two kids in our group now who went to camp for the first time as teens and they both loved it. The check-in process for new parents is always excellent and the follow up email to new parents is always so nice. The greeting staff at the road when you get there is always nice to see. When we checked in and bought a new bucket hat the staff were very attentive to ensure that we didn't need anything, we were always being approached which is great ... Read More

    Very Positive
    Parent (Parent)

    Everything, they teach you about being punctual, manners in the dinning lounge, the activities and most of all, have fun, meeting new friends and oh ya trying to be a better hockey player. Most of all, teaching you to become an adult, but still being a kid. ... Read More

    LOVE IT!
    Parent (Parent)

    My kids LOVE Hockey Opportunity Camp... and one doesn't play hockey!

    Definitely Returning Next Summer
    Lindsay T (2018) (Parent)

    My kids had a blast. I heard nothing but wonderful things the entire way home. The counsellors were amazing, fun and caring. The food is apparently amazing...they went on and on about that. Well done by all. I can't say enough and hopeful to recruit more of their friends next summer ... Read More

    Loved Everything
    Parent- 2022 (Parent)

    They loved it! Particularly my daughter who attended the LIT Program. She was there for 2 weeks and wants to stay for the whole summer next year. That speaks volumes.

    Camp Processes
    Nick K (2018) (Parent)

    Your communication is the best I have seen at any camp. Also your check-in process is outstanding!

    Engaging Instructor
    Camper 2019 (Camper)

    The archery instructor was very positive and patient with me and taught me a lot about archery. The outdoor survival instructor was also amazing and taught me so much about the wilderness and was patient and understanding when I was learning how to navigate with a compass ... Read More

    Best Experience of My Life
    Camper 2019 (Camper)

    Going to this camp was one of the best experiences of my life so thank you for taking great care of us and giving us a great time.

    HOC is Awesome!
    2018 Camper (Camper)

    This was one of the best weeks of my life. I loved how the counsellors were willing to teach me more and help me get better at what I was doing. And the other campers were awesome.

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Kevin McLaughlin, Camp Director
    Over 35 years at HOC, as a camper, staff member and business owner.

    Dear Parents,

    I sincerely hope you will consider Hockey Opportunity Camp (HOC) for your son or daughter this summer.  Since 1966, the HOC experience has provided campers with the opportunity for improved self-confidence, friendship, individual challenge and improved skill development – all in a safe and enjoyable camp environment. 

    HOC is a camp for children with a variety of interests; those who play hockey and for those who don't. Offering three main program specialties: Hockey, Ultimate Traditional Camp and Water Skiing, campers can choose what they are most interested in, yet bunk and spend time with friends who are enrolled in a different specialty program. HOC is a camp for everyone.  

    By offering one-week camp sessions and being located only three hours north of Toronto, campers can enjoy a beautiful northern Ontario camp experience without the fear of being away from home for too long. Staff and campers from all over the world attend HOC, creating a diverse and inclusive camp environment.

    HOC is the “The Ultimate Hockey And Summer Camp Experience”. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns about your child's stay with us this summer.

    Regards,

     

     

     



    Stories

    • Camp Life at HOC
      Camp life is the foundation that ties all of the activities and programs together at Hockey Opportunity Camp. There is magic to camp life that turns activities into experiences, cabin bunkmates into friends and young children into self-confident individuals. Our camp is about people in motion - learning, sharing and enjoying. It is a self-contained community where memories are formed by experiences shared with friends and staff. One of the features of our camp is the diversity of those living in the community. We attract children from across Canada, the United States and abroad. Developing relationships with children from around the world is an important part of our camper's experience. Our community provides campers with an opportunity to learn about each other’s differences, but more importantly about their similarities. "There are no strangers within . . . only friends waiting to be met."
    • Parent Letter
      Just a quick note to let you know that my kids are hooked on HOC! My son and daughter just completed a week with you and had nothing but raving reviews. We have been involved in a number of high end Muskoka summer camps, and they don't come close to HOC. Every staff member that they interacted with was a positive influence on them. All of their activities were highly organized and enjoyed by every camper. The week flew by and they asked to stay another week when I arrived for their Saturday Scrimmage game. Well done HOC!!
    • Long Time Camper and Staff Member
      Hey HOC Staff, It is very seldom that a week should go by when I don't find myself day dreaming about my time spent at HOC. Between being a camper(for what seemed like a lifetime) to becoming a counsellor(which went by way too fast), I have 12 summers of memories that I will keep with me forever. I found myself looking through the pictures of all the staff and campers on your web site and was a little sad that I can no longer take part in all of these experiences. It is amazing to think that so many of my past campers are now on staff, and that the older and more experienced staff still are able to find the time to return year after year. Enjoy your time at HOC, because even though some weeks can be tough, your summer and your time there will be over in no time.
    • Letter from a First TIme Parent
      I just want to thank everyone for making my son's first time at camp a memorable experience. He is always telling me about different stories and memories from his time with you. He really enjoyed everything, including the staff, campers, waterskiing and hockey. I loved being able to email him and the fact that you had pictures of the campers updated daily on your website was amazing. You are doing a wonderful job. You are making a difference in many children's summers and creating unforgettable memories. We will definitely be back next year and my son hopes to become staff when he is older.
