Hockey Program Overview

Looking to get ready for your next winter hockey season with a unique hockey inspired weekend away? We have designed this program as the perfect mix of hockey training, hockey tournament-style play and women's weekend away, all in a unique summer camp setting (with fun camp activities). 

Get Back to Hockey, Get Back to Camp, Get Back to Fun!

Our goal is to get you ready for your winter hockey season while at the same time making sure you reconnect with your love of the outdoors and your camp spirit.

You'll have a chance to meet, mingle and be "sporty" with women from all over Ontario – women just like you who love the sport of hockey but also want the opportunity to get away for a few days, breathe in the fresh northern air and enjoy an active weekend.

The program will be limited to 44 participants (40 players + 4 goalies), with small hockey team sizes (10 players + 1 goalie) and camp activity classes sizes, offering you your own intimate hockey and camp experience. 

NOTE: No team registrations, only individual. Individual participants will all be evenly drafted onto one of four teams to ensure friendly competition during scrimmage games. 

Program is Ideal For

  • Women, 19+ years of age
  • Women who currently play hockey (i.e shinny, scrimmage, women's league, mixed league, tournament team).

Program Schedule Designed to Suit Your Needs

We have designed a well-rounded, robust schedule combining hockey training, hockey game play, camp fun, wellness, entertainment and inspirational speaker. See Full Schedule

Exceptional Hockey Training

Our qualified and experienced instructors will take you through;

  • 2 (1.5 hour & 1.25 hour) Skills & Drills Sessions
  • 2 (1 hr) scrimmage games.
  • Additional Skills & Drills Session (1) (if chosen as breakout activity).
Program is focused on skill development and friendly competition, helping to refine your individual abilities/skills and knowledge of the game.  On-ice program will take place at South River/Machar Arena, 10 minute drive from Hockey Opportunity Camp (retreat location).

Variety of Activities for the 'Campy You' & 'Your Wellness'

In addition to hockey, we offer guests a choice of 3 activities. 

For our breakout sessions, we offer a balance of both active and peaceful options that include sporty camp and fitness activities, informative health workshops and rejuvenating yoga sessions.

  • My vision of Sport & Spirit started with wellness. I wanted to offer a place and space where women could take a break and spend some time on themselves. After the success of our Wellness Retreat in 2018/19 and Hockey Retreat in 2019, it became glaringly obvious that women are hungry for this opportunity. So, for 2023, we've combined the best of women's Hockey and Wellness to create an all encompassing Women's Retreat weekend. I invite you to join us!
