Sports & Adventure Camps

Advanced Soccer

Advanced Soccer (10-15 Yrs.)


Advanced Soccer is designed for the advanced field player and goalkeeper who need more technical, tactical, and competition training. More focus is on speed moves, rhythms, team defensive shape, group attack, one on one, high and low pressure defending, finishing and ball mastery/control.

Participants in this program should have a solid fitness base and experience playing soccer so they will be able to participate in all drills and games. Advance Soccer campers must provide their own gear (soccer cleats, shin pads, soccer socks) and apparel to properly and effectively participate. The first day of the camp program will allow for coaches to assess individualized skills and experience levels and place each camper in groups accordingly for the week.

Soccer athletes will receive technical skill training from certified, high level coaches who use a variety of drills including classroom sessions, film studies and games to take soccer skills to the next level! Improve your footwork, first touch, passing, trapping, technical precision, heading and shooting.

Well-rounded days will be full of small sided games to work on techniques and strategies under pressure, combined with drills, skill development and also a recreational swim. An additional element of our Advanced Soccer campers’ overall experience is film breakdowns and studying professional players in their technical delivery of skill sets.

Adventure Pursuits

Adventure Pursuits: Canoeing, S'Up, & Rock Climbing (10-15 yrs.)

Campers ages 10 – 15 years, are invited to spend a week on our beautiful waterfront campus for teambuilding, paddling, and of course adventure! Through a unique combination of indoor climbing, canoeing, stand up paddleboarding and waterfront games, campers enjoy a fun-filled week while acquiring lifelong skills. Highly qualified and national-level instructors will introduce campers to paddling with a partner, canoe safety, power strokes and steering strokes. Weather permitting; campers spend at least two hours daily on the water learning a variety of canoe skills. Campers learn how to maneuver a canoe using such techniques as the "J" stroke and the "C" stroke, as well as pivoting using the draw and pry strokes. Rescue options are discussed and demonstrated by the instructors for awareness. One day each week the group embarks on a fun, three to four hour canoe trip along Lake Ontario’s shoreline, a wonderful and safe introduction to longer ventures. To meet the safety requirements for waterfront activities, please note that all campers must have the equivalent swimming ability of the Lifesaving Society Swimmer 4 level as well as pass a swimming and treading test (10 continuous lengths and 5 minutes of continuous treading) on the first morning of the week. All campers should bring a proper-fit personal life jacket and appropriate water shoes for canoeing. Not only will the campers learn how to paddle in a canoe but they will also learn basic technique and skill to paddle on a stand up paddleboard as well.

Each afternoon, campers get to have fun on the indoor climbing wall and will learn the basic fundamentals of top rope climbing and solving boulder problems through technique demonstration, games and practice. Campers also acquire skills in belaying, improving their climbing technique and gaining confidence rapidly. Led by certified instructors, the rock climbing focus is to encourage and develop excellent team work, goal setting and oral communication skills. Inclusive to the benefits of indoor rock climbing are muscle development, good balance, discipline, coordination, and problem solving skills. Campers should bring running shoes (not crocs) for climbing in the afternoon.

The program also includes daily swimming in Appleby’s pool and a nutritious meal with hot selections.

Trip Tastic!

Trip Tastic! (10-15 Yrs.)

Why do we call this Adventure Camp TripTastic! you ask?! Because campers will enjoy daily off-site field trips that are fantastic & full of adventure! Each day will consist of a different field trip that will include anything from a day filled with physical activity to a guided tour of a new location. If you are looking for a new and unique adventure every day, TripTastic! is the camp for you!

Qualified instructors and camp staff will be closely supervising daily trips and chartered Appleby school busses will escort campers to all the fun destinations. Admission, transportation and lunch is included. Lunch is either provided by the location, or Appleby provides a bag lunch to each camper daily (please see Offsite Menu). Come and make some new friends this summer and have an exciting week of fantastic field trips!
