About our summer camps
Kids ages 7 to 17 can build skills while enjoying fun and friendship at Ottawa New Edinburgh Club’s summer day camps, located just east of downtown on the Ottawa River.
Tennis, sailing and rowing will be offered in 2021 from July 5 through September 3 in one- or two-week sessions taught by certified instructors.
It doesn’t matter if participants are trying a sport for the first time or if they have previous experience. On the first day, their abilities are assessed, and campers are then divided into groups that match their skills.
TENNIS: ONEC’s Tennis Camps (for ages 7 to 17 years) are a great way to get kids interested in tennis or build on the skills they already possess. Participants learn stroke basics, game strategy, footwork and sportsmanship. Fun, structured, off-court activities are also organized.
SAILING: Sailing (for ages 9 to 17 years) is one of ONEC’s most popular programs. Campers are introduced to its many different elements, including seamanship and safety. ONEC’s Sailing Camp uses the CANSail progressive certification from levels 1 to 4. CANSail 1 may take a week or more; CANSail 2 takes two to three weeks; CANSail 3 and 4 each take four to six weeks. The camp operates in one- to four-week full-day modules; there are a limited number of spaces.
ROWING ADVENTURES: Rowing Camps (for ages 11 to 17 years) take place on the Ottawa River. Learn to Scull (LTS) teaches basic skills of stroke technique and, as necessary, boat handling, water safety and balance. Instruction follows Row Canada’s Journey 1-2-3 program, and Journey 1 and 2 certification may also be attained. Journey 1 takes about two weeks of half-days, while Journey 2 normally takes an additional two weeks of half-days.
