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.

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.

Aquatic Camps

Sport Camps

Junior Griffins Sport Camps are designed to provide young athletes with the opportunity to improve their individual skills in a positive team environment. Camps are co-ed and designed to challenge athletes of all skill and experience levels. Focus is placed on individual skill development and integration of broad team concepts. Our camps adhere to the standards outlined in the Long-Term Athlete Development Strategy. MacEwan University Athletes and Coaches ensure that every athlete is able to improve their skill level regardless of their experience.
