The Olympia Mission

At Olympia, our goal is to empower each and every camper with Inner Balance-based Living and Performance Excellence.

What does this mean?

We see our campers as going on a journey at Olympia – a Hero’s Journey.

Upon arriving at Olympia, camper’s leave their “everyday life” of back home and accept to call to adventure – the Olympia Challenge.

By providing a world-class, up-beat and safe environment, campers learn to participate and share in a community that focuses on positive energy and peer encouragement.

Our 40-Year History

Olympia Sports Camp is located about 20 minutes away from Huntsville, Ontario near Algonquin Provincial Park. It is located in a beautiful location with over 40 acres of property nestled in between two lakes.

In 1974 Dave Grace started Olympia Sports Camp as a one week basketball camp. Football camp was added a couple of years later, and Olympia moved to its current location in 1980.

Since that time, Olympia has grown tremendously. We now offer almost 100 different sport and activity camps for both boys and girls.

Dave Grace, Camp Director

Dave Grace has devoted his life to the athletic and personal development of young people.

Continually researching the latest learning strategies and self-development techniques, Dave uses his Dave Talk platform to interweave his findings into camper’s daily lives at Olympia.

His mission for Olympia is to empower each and every camper to be the best all-round person that he or she can be.
