Preparing for Camps - Everything To Know

At this time, our plan is to open online registration for Sport Fitness School on Monday, May 17th, with camps running July 5th - August 27th. 

PLEASE GO TO THE SPORT FITNESS SCHOOL (2021 SEASON PROGRAM) FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION ON OUR PROGRAMMING THIS SUMMER.

Under guidance from the Ontario Camps Association (OCA), Hamilton Public Health, and McMaster University, the Department of Athletics & Recreation is planning to hold limited in-person summer camps on campus beginning July 5th. Sport Fitness School will be the only camp program offered this summer and we will not be running Mini-University or Marauder Sport Camps. There will be more updates regarding the possibility of offering Marauder Skills Development Clinics later in the spring. The OCA has a task force of camp experts who are working alongside public health officials, medical personnel and government representatives to put forth a comprehensive plan for all camps that will put the health and safety of your children at the forefront. Please note that there will be updates in the coming weeks with more details on what to expect this camp season and how to best prepare for a safe summer.
