    •     Sports - In accordance with the Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTADM), we want your child to be as active and healthy for life, not just during our camp! Your child will most likely be in one of the following stages of the LTADM: FUNdamentals or Learn to Train. Games will focus on providing fun, inclusive, multi-sport and developmentally appropriate sport and physical activity. With older campers, we will dive into more skill based sport games and activities. Our goal is to positively affect campers by developing a wide range of movement skills, while increasing their confidence and desire to participate. Sport may include, but are not limited to: Basketball, Hockey, Soccer, Football, Volleyball, Baseball, Dodgeball, Handball, Badminton, Table Tennis, Pickleball, Tennis, etc. We will play a variety of sports each week to insure children are playing some of their favourite sports and some sports they have never tried before!
