Summer Hockey Camp

Hockey Camp

is a high intensity hockey training academy that takes place each year in July.  Each year student athletes from all across Canada, the U.S. and from destinations like Austria, Norway, Germany, Russia, and many other countries, descend on the beautiful campus of College Harrington du Canada in Oka, Quebec.

Harrington Summer Hockey Camp

Each hockey athlete is able to take advantage of the high impact on ice training that includes 3 hours of ice each day, 1 1/2 hours of off-ice strength and conditioning daily, for a well rounded fitness and ice experience.

Our professional coaching staff will guide athletes through a focused training program that will allow the strength and conditioning off- ice workouts and the on ice instruction to really improve their hockey skills.

Youth attending the hockey school will be challenged daily with 3 hour of ice time, intensive dry-land conditioning, power skating, passing, shooting, off-ice training techniques and video analysis. Other features of the camp include lectures on nutrition, injury prevention, equipment maintenance and perspectives from Harrington Iceberg Staff.

Harrington Summer Hockey Camp

At the Harrington Hockey Camp each student will enjoy an on ice experience with position specific drills and scrimmages that will further develop their level of play.

Each student will also benefit from the social experience of the camp with daily activities to enhance the overall camp experience.
