Since 1966, HOC has combined hockey skill development with a traditional overnight camp experience, located on Eagle Lake. A typical day combines "Best In Class" hockey training with two of our many skill based activities including Water Skiing / Wake Sports, Mountain Biking, Wall Climbing, Archery, Kayaking etc. HOC is truly “THE ULTIMATE HOCKEY AND SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE”.
My kids had a blast. I heard nothing but wonderful things the entire way home. The counsellors were amazing, fun and caring. The food is apparently amazing...they went on and on about that. Well done by all. I can't say enough and hopeful to recruit more of their friends next summer.
Your communication is the best I have seen at any camp. Also your check-in process is outstanding!
I was very impressed with HOC from the registration to the open house day and the check in day was the most organized camp process I have ever been through. As a new family to HOC we felt really comfortable leaving our son here. We were shocked and impressed at how many staff HOC employs! It's so nice to know that those with the right skills were hired to run the sports/areas they did with the right expertise. Would definitely recommend- my child did not have a negative comment about anything- he had a blast! Thank you.
Keep doing what you're doing! I was amazing at how organized the whole check-in process was! All the staff was amazing! My son will definitely be back next year!
I continue to promote HOC as a great place to send your kids- especially those who have never been away before. We've had two kids in our group now who went to camp for the first time as teens and they both loved it. The check-in process for new parents is always excellent and the follow up email to new parents is always so nice. The greeting staff at the road when you get there is always nice to see. When we checked in and bought a new bucket hat the staff were very attentive to ensure that we didn't need anything, we were always being approached which is great.
This was one of the best weeks of my life. I loved how the counsellors were willing to teach me more and help me get better at what I was doing. And the other campers were awesome.
Going to this camp was one of the best experiences of my life so thank you for taking great care of us and giving us a great time.
The archery instructor was very positive and patient with me and taught me a lot about archery. The outdoor survival instructor was also amazing and taught me so much about the wilderness and was patient and understanding when I was learning how to navigate with a compass.

Camp life is the foundation that ties all of the activities and programs together at Hockey Opportunity Camp. There is magic to camp life that turns activities into experiences, cabin bunkmates into friends and young children into self-confident individuals. Our camp is about people in motion - learning, sharing and enjoying. It is a self-contained community where memories are formed by experiences shared with friends and staff. One of the features of our camp is the diversity of those living in the community. We attract children from across Canada, the United States and abroad. Developing relationships with children from around the world is an important part of our camper's experience. Our community provides campers with an opportunity to learn about each otherâs differences, but more importantly about their similarities. "There are no strangers within . . . only friends waiting to be met."
Just a quick note to let you know that my kids are hooked on HOC! My son and daughter just completed a week with you and had nothing but raving reviews. We have been involved in a number of high end Muskoka summer camps, and they don't come close to HOC. Every staff member that they interacted with was a positive influence on them. All of their activities were highly organized and enjoyed by every camper. The week flew by and they asked to stay another week when I arrived for their Saturday Scrimmage game. Well done HOC!!
Hey HOC Staff, It is very seldom that a week should go by when I don't find myself day dreaming about my time spent at HOC. Between being a camper(for what seemed like a lifetime) to becoming a counsellor(which went by way too fast), I have 12 summers of memories that I will keep with me forever. I found myself looking through the pictures of all the staff and campers on your web site and was a little sad that I can no longer take part in all of these experiences. It is amazing to think that so many of my past campers are now on staff, and that the older and more experienced staff still are able to find the time to return year after year. Enjoy your time at HOC, because even though some weeks can be tough, your summer and your time there will be over in no time.
I just want to thank everyone for making my son's first time at camp a memorable experience. He is always telling me about different stories and memories from his time with you. He really enjoyed everything, including the staff, campers, waterskiing and hockey. I loved being able to email him and the fact that you had pictures of the campers updated daily on your website was amazing. You are doing a wonderful job. You are making a difference in many children's summers and creating unforgettable memories. We will definitely be back next year and my son hopes to become staff when he is older.
