Learn to Play Sports Camp

Enjoy an affordable, safe, and fun camp this summer. Children can enjoy a summer outdoors being introduced to a variety of sports in a recreational manner, while learning the important life skills of respect, leadership, responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Campers will be constantly supervised by our facility’s highest quality instructors trained in child approved activities. Our camps welcome children of all skill levels. Each week, we will introduce children to a multi-sampler of sports, with a special focus on hockey and one other sport. We provide all the equipment at no extra cost to you, and as always, the RPD upholds its recreation satisfaction guarantee.
