Junior Griffins Summer Camps
Junior Griffins Summer Sport and Aquatic Camps are designed to engage youth by teaching basic sport and aquatic concepts in a positive environment that is both challenging and fun. Camps not only improve youths’ technical skills, by introducing them to various forms of physical activity, but they also gain techniques for a healthy life. Aquatic camps include swimming lessons. Although swimmers may not complete a level in a one-week camp, their progressions will be tracked throughout the summer.
All our kids and youth summer camps are co-ed and for ages 6 to 15* and take place in July and August. Each camp is designed to engage athletes of various experience and skill-level. They are led by MacEwan University Coaches, Athletes, and Fitness and Aquatic professionals.
Spring Break Camp
Try the Aquatic Adventures camp for some active fun this Spring Break! With a variety of aquatic activities throughout the week, there is something for everyone! Participants should expect to spend time in the pool playing on Kayaks, the Log Roll, a Water Runner, playing games on inner tubes, and practicing Junior Lifesaving Sport, and swimming. We will also plan dryland activities that encourage physical activity and techniques for a healthy lifestyle.
Note: Supervision is extended 30 min before and after each day.

Sport and Aquatic camps could qualify for the Children's Fitness Tax Credit. It allows you to claim eligible fees paid in the year up to a maximum of $500 per child (an additional amount is available for a child eligible for the Disability Tax Credit). Eligible fees include an amount paid related to the cost of registration or membership for your or your spouse's or common-law partner's child in a prescribed program of physical activity. The child must have been under 16 years of age (or under 18 years of age if eligible for the disability tax credit) at the beginning of the year in which an eligible fitness expense was paid.
To qualify for the tax credit, a program must be: ongoing (either a minimum of eight weeks duration with a minimum of one session per week or, in the case of children’s camps, five consecutive days); supervised; suitable for children; and substantially all of the activities must include a significant amount of physical activity that contributes to cardio-respiratory endurance plus one or more of muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility or balance.
