The University of Winnipeg has over 40 years of experience with summer camps. We offer week long sessions in basketball, volleyball and girls soccer, as well as a multisport option. New for 2016 is a morning racquetball camp, a morning ultimate frisbee camp and two weeks of outreach sessions in Kenora, Ontario.
Our campers will receive excellent instruction by our coaching staff and elite Wesmen student-athletes who are friendly, enthusiastic and committed to the improvement and wellbeing of each camper. A low player to coach ratio (6 to 1) allows for maximum individual attention. Campers are grouped by grade and ability for an equal mix of fun and skill development.
Everyone receives a Wesmen camp t-shirt. Basketball, volleyball and soccer campers will go home at the end of the camp with a basketball, volleyball or soccer ball. Steve Nash basketball campers will also receive a reversible jersey, bag, poster and certificate.
