Sport Camps

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.

Hockey Camps

The Junior Griffin Youth Hockey Camps will give boys and girls a 5 day on and off ice experience. Campers will receive instruction on-ice and be given the opportunity to develop their hockey skills and individual technical and tactical game knowledge in a competitive environment. Between ice sessions the focus will shift to other exciting activities around Meadows and Castedowns like basketball and floor ball.

Camps are led by MacEwan University coaches and athletes.

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.
