At its core, Camp Chikopi is your traditional sports camp. Instruction is based on each individual camper. Our focus is on developing skills and enhancing performance. Camp Chikopi offers campers more than 25 different sports. These fun camp activities provide campers with the opportunity to excel in their preferred sport, and an added elective. This gives our campers the chance to experience other sports outside their comfort zone. Through participation, campers gain leadership skills and build self-confidence simultaneously. Not to forget – it’s fun, exciting, and enjoyable.
The Soccer Program at Camp Chikopi focuses expressly on individual player development within a team environment. We emphasize the fundamental skills of the sport. This includes training drills, game tactics, and real-time scrimmages. With personal coaching and physical conditioning, every camper improves and excels on the pitch. Physically, mentally and emotionally, Chikopi campers learn and compete surrounded by nature.
Campers are instructed in the fundamentals of passing, receiving, and shooting. Additionally, there is instruction in control, dribbling, juggling, and running with the ball. And finally, there’s turning and shielding the ball, as well as striking and scoring.
Understanding the strategy and tactics of the game is key to success. Training drills include attacking and defending, ball movement and footwork, and shooting to score goals. At Camp Chikopi, advanced soccer drills make for better, long-term soccer skills.
Every position on the soccer field requires a specific set of skills. Chikopi campers will improve their running, learn how to shut down an opponent, and fine-tune the use of angles. These athletic skills make for better players.
At Camp Chikopi, campers in the Soccer Program will significantly improve their agility, speed, and endurance. This training experience combines quality coaching in a camp environment that promotes safety, creativity, and fun.
The “Chikopi Spirit" is about lasting friendships. We believe this comes from living together, playing together, and pulling together. Be part of the team at the best overnight camp in Ontario. We are dedicated to the personal growth and fun-fulfillment of every camper!
