If you want to give your children (or grandchildren) a great summer day camp experience, check out the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club (ONEC), where they will discover new skills, new friends… and lots of fun adventures!
ONEC has operated summer day camps from its scenic location on the Ottawa River since the mid 1980s and normally offers tennis, sailing, rowing, big canoeing and stand up paddleboarding (SUP), all taught by certified instructors.
This summer, campers can select a single sport or a combination of two sports. Operating weekdays from July 6 to August 28, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, ONEC’s Summer Day Camps offer half- or full-day attendance for one to four weeks. Pre- and post-camp supervision is available from 8:00 am and up until 5:00 pm.
It doesn’t matter if participants are trying a sport for the first time or if they have previous experience. On the first day, their abilities are assessed, and campers are then divided into groups that match their skills, while also ensuring that COVID-19 protocols are followed.
ONEC’s Tennis Camps (for ages 7 to 17 years) are a great way to get kids interested in tennis or build on the skills they already possess. Participants learn stroke basics, game strategy, footwork and sportsmanship. Fun structured off-court activities are also organized, and all campers receive an ONEC Summer Day Camp t-shirt.
Sailing (for ages 9 to 17 years) is one of ONEC’s most popular programs. Campers are introduced to its many different elements, including seamanship and safety. ONEC’s Sailing Camp uses the CANSail progressive certification from levels 1 to 4. CANSail 1 may take a week or more; CANSail 2 takes two to three weeks; CANSail 3 and 4 each take four to six weeks. All participants must sign up for full-day sailing camps.
Our popular rowing, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding programs will resume in 2021.
ONEC has implemented strategies and protocols to protect against COVID-19 transmission, to keep our campers and their families safe. For more details go to our website, www.onec.ca.
ONEC Summer Day Camps offer great value and are HST-exempt as well.
