TheBishop’s Gaiters De­part­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation sum­mer camp reg­is­tra­tion is un­der­way. This year four dif­fer­ent sport camps will be of­fered over four weeks dur­ing the sum­mer­time. Each camp will be led by one of the Gaiters coaches. The camps be­ing of­fered in­clude: foot­ball, bas­ket­ball, soc­cer and golf.

The sum­mer pro­gram­ing will get un­der­way with foot­ball camp which is slated to take place from June 23-28. Led by Gaiters head coach Kevin Mackey, this camp is open for young­sters ages 10-17. The campers will be bro­ken down into groups by age where they will get great hands on teach­ing from a va­ri­ety of coaches from across the province from high school right up through the Cégep ranks. A num­ber of Gaiter foot­ball play­ers will also be in­volved dur­ing the week. Campers will have the op­tion of spend­ing the week in res­i­dence or at­tend­ing as a day cam­per.

Next up is bas­ket­ball camp led by Lady Gaiters bench boss Alex Perno. There will be two, one-week camps. The first is slated for June 30 - July 5 and the sec­ond from July 7-12. Th­ese camps are open to 10-17 year olds and will be lim­ited to 50 campers each week. They prom­ise hands on learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence from an­other tal­ented list of lo­cal coaches. Again both res­i­den­tial and day camp op­tions are avail­able.

New for the sum­mer of 2013 is soc­cer camp. Phil Ribaux, the women’s soc­cer coach at Bishop’s along with his as­sis­tants and a few play­ers will di­rect this camp which takes place from July 14-19. This will be open to 8-15 year olds who again have the op­tion of res­i­dence or day camp. Ev­ery­thing from in­di­vid­ual skills to be­com­ing a bet­ter team­mate will be cov­ered; en­sur­ing that ev­ery­one who at­tends will be a bet­ter soc­cer player at the end of the week.

The foot­ball, bas­ket­ball and soc­cer camps each cost $275 for the week for a day cam­per and $550 for a res­i­den­tial cam­per.

Also this year there will be a golf day camp that will be over­seen by the Gaiters golf team and coach Marty Rourke. It will take place from July 8-12 in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Old Len­noxville Golf Course. Campers will learn the ba­sics from eti­quette to rules to fun­da­men­tals of the game. Those with more ex­pe­ri­ence will be given the chance to im­prove their game and work on more pre­cise skills. All campers will be able to ex­pe­ri­ence some time on the course. This camp is open to 8-15 year olds and costs $205 for the week.
