By Ottawa Sports Pages, for RA Centre
Archery, badminton, soccer, swimming — even pickleball. At the RA Centre’s summer camps, you can do it all.
The RA is offering speciality camps this summer for those looking to excel in specific sports, alongside day camps for children ages four to 11. Campers will enjoy formal instruction in their chosen sport as well as traditional camp activities.
At pickleball camp, kids will get a taste of the fastest growing sport in North America. They’ll learn the techniques, skills and strategies behind this popular sport, working on their balance and agility in a fun way.
At archery camp for kids ages nine to 14, campers will spend two hours each day at the range. They’ll learn the basics of shooting a recurve bow, culminating with a friendly competition on the last day of camp.
Senior AquaCamp, offered to those aged 10 to 13, is a great opportunity for those interested in becoming lifeguards. Campers will spend their time learning lifesaving skills as well as playing aquatic games and sports.
And for those who are too excited to pick just one sport, the multi-sports camp lets you engage with several sports to work towards physical literacy in skills such as running, throwing, catching and jumping.
All specialty camps include cooling off with a daily swim in one of the RA’s two outdoor swimming pools.
Teenagers ages 13 and older can participate in the CIT Volunteer Training Program to help out at the camps and gain experience towards becoming counsellors in future summers.
