The Pakmen Kids Summer Volleyball Camp is back for its eighth consecutive year! This summer camp is available to children 6 to 14 years old that are looking to spend their summer off of their computer and on the court. Pakmen is proud to provide children with an active, yet fun way to spend the summer and meet new people. With NCCP certified volleyball coaches children are guaranteed a great experience!
As the largest and most diverse volleyball club in Canada, Pakmen is proud to say they’ve provided kids all over Ontario with great volleyball training, and a variety of fun and engaging summer activities.
On the first day, players are divided by age and skill level- to ensure they feel challenged and connected with the players around them. Camp starts off with fun warm-up games like ‘Octopus’ or tag, then fun drills based on skill level, then half the campers play indoors while the other half is outside; switching around 10:30 am. Lunch lasts for a half-hour, when players can socialize and get to know each other.
After lunch, we play fun tournament – outdoor or indoor beach volleyball games (depending on the weather), and at 1:00 pm, the half-day campers go home with Freezies! The full-day kids spend the rest of the afternoon playing dodgeball, soccer, hockey, performing skits, watching volleyball videos, and playing other camp games; although the day always ends with a few rounds of indoor volleyball.
Each year, Pakmen creates a volleyball video featuring the participants of their summer camp, and these videos can be found on Pakmen’s Youtube channel. Pakmen Volleyball is a fun and cost-effective way for kids to productively spend their free time, exercise, and meet new people!
