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 otherâs differences, but more importantly about their similarities.
"There are no strangers within . . . only friends waiting to be met."
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.
