By Ottawa Sports Pages, For Dome Louis-Riel
Does your young athlete have trouble choosing just one sport? They can have it all at the Dome Louis-Riel’s Multi-Sport Summer Camp!
Let them explore all their sports passions – soccer, badminton, swimming, volleyball, basketball, touch football, track & field, and many more!
New this year! Two weeks of Multi-Adventure Camp Week 2 (July 10-14) and Week 6 (Aug. 8-11). Participants will get to experience exciting off-site trips, to locations such as the beach, nature museum or trampoline.
This year lunch will be included with the multisport summer camp. Campers are to bring their own lunches to adventure camp Week 2 (July 10-14) and Week 6 (Aug. 8-11), expect for pizza Friday.
The camps align with Sport Canada’s Long-Term Athlete Development philosophies, which encourage young athletes to participate in a wide variety of sports to build their motor skills – all offered in a fun, safe and entertaining environment.
“They get to try a lot of sports – it’s not always the same one,” underlines Dome manager Sophie Anderson, whose camp staff includes many talented and knowledgeable graduates/upper-year students from Louis-Riel high school’s renowned Sports-Study program. All are bilingual.
“If the kids speak to us in English, we’ll answer in English, and if they speak French, we’ll answer in French,” adds Anderson. “So it’s a great environment for kids to be exposed to both languages during the summer, and parents certainly also enjoy that our fees are very competitive.”
The inaugural Multi-Adventure Camp weeks promise to offer a special new experience for campers.
“Our school has our own busses for the Sports-Study program, so that gives us the chance to offer some pretty unique outings that you won’t find at other camps,” Anderson indicates.
And of course there are the camp’s classic Mini-Olympics competitions, which are always a hit, with endless smiles and cheers.
“Everyone always gets pumped up for that,” Anderson adds, “so there’s really nowhere better to ignite kids’ spirit for sport than right here.”
