Roger Neilson’s Hockey Camp enters its 39th year in 2015 and continues to be one of the World’s most sought after camp destinations.
Our success can be attributed to many things including our experienced and dedicated staff (several who will celebrate their 39th year with the camp), our willingness to change along with our constant desire to improve our programs – but most notable, of course, is the foundation and philosophy built by Roger himself.
Roger was extremely meticulous, paying great attention to every detail of the camp experience. He believed strongly that campers should be kept busy every minute of the day and that even ‘down time’ should be planned so that no camper ever had to decide what to do next. He constantly tweaked our schedule to ensure that campers got the most out of their time spent with us and he was always interested to make sure they had the time of their lives. An integral part of this balance came from the belief that campers should work hard at camp, go home having improved both on and off the ice – and that they should enjoy themselves doing so! This continues to be our guiding influence and Roger’s memory is forever present in all that we do.
Choosing the right camp can be a daunting task. Each one has their merits and also their own unique philosophy. Take the time you need to make the right choice for your child and include them in the process. We encourage you to call or email us to ask any questions that may help with your decision. We hope that Roger Neilson’s will be the right fit for you, but if it isn’t what you’re looking for, we’ll let you know that too and direct you to another choice that may be a better fit.
With close to 40 years of history in the summer Hockey Camp industry, you can rest assured your child(ren) will receive the utmost attention both on and off the ice in a safe and enjoyable environment.
