Camps

As we continue to take registrations and prepare for our upcoming 2021 Briercrest Summer Sports Camps, we are really excited to have gotten confirmation at the beginning of June from Sask Health and Sask Sport that, in light of the Sask Re-Open Plan going quite well, things are on track for all COVID restrictions on overnight camps and sports to be lifted by mid-July!

This means that things look really positive for us to be able to do our week-long overnight sports here on our Briercrest campus without any restrictions! We will, of course, remain pro-active and nimble in our planning, to be able to adjust to any COVID protocols that might be in place at the time our camps run. However, we want our campers and parents to know that we are planning for our usual full Briercrest Sports Camp experience here, including team competition each day, for campers to be able to finally enjoy the fun experience of competing with other teams in their sport again!

We are planning to start off with 2 weeks of girls volleyball camps, then 1 week of boys volleyball camp, followed by a week of boys basketball camp, and finishing off the summer with a week of girls basketball camp.

The dates are as follows:

  • Girls Volleyball Camp

What is Summer Sports Camp?

If you haven’t been to a Briercrest Summer Sports Camp before, here is a snapshot of what we offer:
Briercrest Sports Camps have been held for nearly 40 years and have provided a unique environment upon which athletes can develop their skills while simultaneously learning how to grow in their relationship with God and develop character through the incredible training ground we have here with competitive sport!  Part of Briercrest’s overall vision is to equip young leaders to engage our world. Within that, our mission as Briercrest Sports Camps is to help build the next generation of leaders through the vehicle of competitive athletics. Our camps provide a great opportunity to help young leaders grow in their character, their leadership ability, their foundational life skills, and in their relationships with God and others, while developing critical skills in a sport they love so they can continue to reach their greatest potential as an athlete. Every year we have athletes from all across the Prairie provinces, and even some from Ontario and BC, come to our campus here in Caronport, SK for a fantastic week of volleyball or basketball camp!

Each week of Briercrest Summer Camps is an amazing experience of learning and growing in all areas of life. You will receive the high-quality coaching from outstanding people who return to camp each year to invest 100% of themselves into the campers to help them learn new skills while improving their current skill level in their sport. Each camper will also be on a team for the week where they participate in league games each day, and also playoffs at the end of the week for their skill division. Our coaches are big on building relationships with the campers and strive to help them grow in their relationship with God wherever they are at. There is a great social aspect to the camp as the campers stay here on our campus for the whole week and participate in fun activities outside of their sport including swimming in Moose Jaw, evening program, small groups, meal times in the campus dining hall, camp fire and other fun camp games! We offer all of this great week-long experience for just $445 if you register before the early bird deadline of June 30th ($485 after the early bird). All meals and accommodations are included. We hope you can join us at one of our camps for the best week of your summer!

Location
  • Camps are held in the Margaret P. Reimer Gymnasium located at Briercrest Christian Academy, College and Seminary, in Caronport, Saskatchewan. 

 

Briercrest athletics has been instrumental in my learning and personal development. This program mentored me and taught me about servant leadership and the importance of authentic relationships.
