About this camp

highlights

Spend your summer with the Lions! Choose from a multi-sport summer camp, focus on a particular sport or try one of our adventure camps such as pirate, warrior training or superhero camp. Each camp will engage campers with a wide range of summer fun. Weekly activities include a martial arts class, daily leadership and sport instructional session by specialty instructors.


The Our Kids review of York University Lions Camps

our take

The focus of the Lions camps is less about drilling down than it is building out, allowing campers opportunites to experience a wide range of athletic activity, from field sports to martial arts. The intent is to bring young people together around a range of inclusive wellness activity, to challenge them a bit, and to build their confidence and resilience at the same time. The staff is sympathetic to all of that, made up of youth leaders from the York student community. That, too, is a plus, offering campers an opportunity to gain a first-hand sense of what empathetic leadership and mentorship looks like, as modeled by counsellors that have distinguished themselves in exactly that. It’s telling that some of the activities are fanciful, such as Quidditch, pirate training, and superhero training—they are fun, and less about skills and more about the shared experience. There are some intensive sessions, such as strength and conditioning for teens, but the even there, the goals include a meaningful engagement with others around some shared challenges, shared laughs, and everything in between. The facilities, it goes without saying, are excellent, all based within the York campus.
