McGill Sports Camp

Mission and Values

To inspire youths to engage in sports and recreational activities, and to live an active and healthy lifestyle in a safe, fun, and welcoming environment.

Excellence

For 40 years, we have been committed to providing quality programming in a safe environment with a team of university-level animators and well-known facilities that are home to the McGill Martlets and Redbirds, as well as the Montreal Alouettes.

Community

We are a proud and dedicated member of the McGill and Montreal communities. We aim to foster a healthy lifestyle and love of sports that will exist beyond the walls of camp.

Positive experience

We believe that a memorable camp experience starts before your child sets foot in our building. From registration to the end of the camp season, we do our best to offer families and campers the best possible service and attention.

Diversity & Inclusion

We make sure all campers feel welcome and comfortable participating in all sports activities regardless of their skill level.

Respect

Similar to how our campers work together on the field, court or in the pool, we believe that respectful exchanges are fundamental to good sportsmanship and teamwork.

Personal growth

We strive to help our campers grow into the best versions of themselves by promoting essential skills through sports, such as leadership, teamwork and responsibility.

Physical literacy and wellness

We want to motivate our campers to stay active for their well-being. Through team-based activities, campers will learn more about different sports, gain confidence and engage in physical activity.
