Golden Hawk Multi-Sport Camp
Entering its 29th summer, the Golden Hawk Multi-Sport Camp at Wilfrid Laurier University has a new and energetic spin! New this year, programming will focus on physical literacy skill development and the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model!
Themed weeks, dress-up days, swim days at the Waterloo Recreation Complex and exciting “Camper’s Choice” programming are also exciting elements of this camp! A low ratio of staff to campers will see the sport sessions reach the height of professionalism, quality in sport instruction, and of course, fun!
Not only does our camp programming differ from week to week to accommodate returning campers, but programming changes on a daily basis as well! Each sport and activity session will help campers become more confident and competent with the fundamental movement skills, emphasize skill development from the stages of the LTAD while promoting team work and cooperation.
**Please ensure your child comes to camp with a nut free lunch.
