Scroll down to see what you should bring to camp, what you should leave at home, when to arrive, and when you are done!  Please be sure to read our section at the bottom about security/valuables/phones.

Check in and Registration:

  • REGISTRATION: 2-6pm on the Sunday of your week in the upper rink lobby.

Please arrive at the Alberni Multiplex between 2pm and 6pm for check in on the Sunday before your first day of camp. All weeks run Monday to Saturday, hence check in is Sunday late afternoon. (Junior A Prospects and our College Group run Monday to Friday in Week 4).  When you enter the main doors, turn right and head up the stairs to the upper lobby where you will find our registration table. All players staying in the dorms will then be directed to their  dorm hall. The dorm hall is located in the Alberni Athletic Hall behind and to the right of the multiplex.

All day campers must take their equipment home every night.  We have more teams than dressing rooms, so equipment storage and room rotations must be followed throughout the week. All dorming players will be provided dinner on Sunday evening, followed by a welcome meeting for all players (both dorming and day campers) at 6pm Sunday. Camp starts first thing Monday morning.  Click here for schedules.

Check out and Departure:

Camp finishes by approximately 12:15pm on Saturday. On this final day players have one final on ice game. We welcome all family and friends to drop in at the rink at any time during camp, and certainly welcome you all at their final game. Players will depart immediately after their last event, so therefore overnight campers must have their dorm room packed, cleaned, and checked by a dorm captain before heading to their first event. Players using our transportation service must be ready to leave for the airport/ferry with their suitcase and equipment packed in front of the main doors of the multiplex by 12:30pm. All players on a meal plan will be given a quick opportunity to take a sandwich and fruit for the drive to their departure destination.

What you will need at camp:

Our participants are on the ice 2 times per day. In addition we have off-ice conditioning and skill development programs 2 times per day. Given the intensity of the camp and the frequency of the training you should bring plenty of quick drying under clothing so you can let one dry and wear the other. We have a professional laundry service available at camp.  Cost: $10.  Turn around: 12-24 hours.

Safety / Valuables:

  • Laptops not recommended.

  • We provide a “Bank” service whereby players can leave cash/wallet with us and receive distribution when they need it.  We keep the “Bank” locked in a secure location.
