The moment you enter the front gates, you’ll be welcomed by Olympia with open arms.
Our staff will make Olympia your “home away from home” as you discover new friendships, new adventures, and new challenges and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Olympia offers a wide range of sports and activities, so you can find one that’s right for you.
You will receive focused instruction in your chosen specialty, including 5 – 6 hours of skills and games.
All campers play equal time in daily inter-league play with competitively matched teams. The week ends with a camp tournament and championships, complete with an awards ceremony.
Personalized attention is a hallmark of Olympia’s instructional programs. A low instructor to camper ratio is maintained at all times, with one instructor for every 6 – 7 camper, making individual advice only a question away.
Olympia’s top priority is to meet the needs of every camper – from beginners to advanced. Our coaches and activity leaders are some of the best, with many having experience at the international, national, provincial, and university levels.
The lifeblood of Olympia is its staff. From senior staff to counsellors, everyone working at Olympia is there to ensure the kids have a fantastic summer!
In fact, most of Olympia’s staff are former campers themselves, so they know how to make the most of the Olympia experience!
The Olympia facilities include everything that is required to provide a safe and fun camping experience. Along with the numerous sports and activities venues, Olympia also houses a tuck shop, health center, lifeguard shack, and even laundry facilities (for multi-week campers).
Each of our cabins accomodates between 7 – 12 campers. There are 2 counsellors in each cabin. All cabins are equipped with modern conveniences such as electricity, washrooms and showers.
To ensure a safe camping experience, the group’s counsellors reside in each cabin with his or her campers for the entire week.
At Olympia, our goal is to empower each and every camper with Inner Balance-based Living and Performance Excellence.
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.
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 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.
