Are you looking for a 1-week overnight sports camp experience?

For over 33 years, Camp Madawaska has been Canada's number one volleyball camp. Building on this success, is the introduction of a unique All-Sport camp which will encompass many of the elements that has made Madawaska so popular for so many years - spirit, skill development and building friendships.

All Sport Camp
Athletes are grouped by gender, age and ability. Individual attention is offered to all athletes with ample time devoted to competitive play. A recreational swim will be offered daily. The All-Sport program is supplemented by a well-planned social and evening program providing all participants with an enriched camping experience.The Madawaska All-Sport staff are an outstanding collection of counsellors, excellent athletes in their own right, who work positively with young people. More importantly, all staff will possess the skills to work effectively with all children, regardless of ability, to ensure a positive and successful camp experience for everyone. Our staff will participate in their own pre-camp training that will work towards improving their own leadership skills and make sure that our techniques regarding the care of your child is consistent, motivating and fun-filled.

Volleyball Camp
Over our 33 years we have impacted on volleyball tremendously with many provincial, national, and international players honing their skills on our site, under the tutallage of our outstanding staff. Our ratio of campers to coaches is 4:1, unheard of in any volleyball learning center.  When MADAWASKA first started, as a development camp of the Ontario Volleyball Association in 1972, the objective was to develop elite athletes in the province. Over the years, our philosophy has expanded. We now see ourselves as a unique setting where the novice/beginner is equally at home with the advanced player. Whether you are an experienced club player, or a jr. high school beginner, Madawaska is the place for you to learn and have a wonderful camp experience. We accept athletes, boys and girls, from 12 years of age to adults. Players are placed in homogeneous groups, based on age/grade and skill. They play and sleep together, and by week end, they are a “team”, with new friendships having evolved, and a life experience gained from having planned and worked together for the week. Madawaska accepts a maximum of 500 athletes - 400 in the regular team (indoor) program, and 100 in the beach volleyball section. Athletes come from across Canada and the U.S. As well, we have had “guests athletes” and coaches from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, Venezuela, Chile, Mexico, England, Ireland, Poland, and California. Madawaska is a “family” of volleyballers. With so many of our staff being 15 and 20 year “veterans”, there is a camaraderie and passion that infects all who attend. YOUR experience at Madawaska will be a learning experience. Maximum contacts, valuable feedback, all from a most knowledgeable coaching staff. You may not develop into national team player, but you will come away as a much better player, and having experienced the fun from working and playing with new friends. You will leave Madawaka, as thousands before you have, with the “passion’ for the sport of volleyball.

WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US!
