Junior Griffins PD Day, Holiday and 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.

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.
