Cavan FC Sports CampPowered by Crestwood Edge
After a very successful first year, we are very excited to announce that The Cavan FC Sports Camp ~ Powered by Crestwood Edge, is returning once again for the summer of 2023! Maple Leaf Soccer and the Crestwood Edge program are proud to partner up again to bring you this amazing camp.
Last year we sold out all 4 weeks and due to the popularity of the camp, we have decided to open up a 5th week.
You can expect soccer to be a big part of the day once again. We will have a skills focused session each morning along with some soccer game play in the afternoon.
The rest of the day you can expect campers to experience a wide variety of activities such as basketball, badminton, capture the flag, mat ball, relay games, ultimate frisbee and of course our popular “backpocket games” and water games just to name a few.
This year we are looking forward to adding a bit more variety for those campers who attend multiple weeks. We are also working with a few community partners to bring in specialists on various days and we are adding some other fun game days such as the Amazing Race.
We strive to make the camp safe and fun while developing important skills; physically, socially and emotionally. We also feel we can offer facilities that will allow campers to have fun on the hot sunny days or in the pouring rain. The camp will take place at Crestwood Secondary School. We make use of many of the facilities including the soccer fields, ball diamonds and the gymnasium.
Our counselors will consist of senior high school students who have sports backgrounds and love working with children. They bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Our goal is to make the campers have an amazing experience, we know that having a great staff is a huge part of running a successful camp. Our counselors will attend a training program to ensure that safety and fun expectations are met. This includes in class training as well inviting some of our feeder schools over for a “training day” so our counselors can practice their skills and activities ahead of time. There will be a teacher supervisor on site at all times as well, in case of emergencies.

1. Does the camp only focus on soccer?
No, although the focus will be soccer we recognize the importance of providing children the opportunity to explore and learn all fundamental movement skills by playing small-sided games because games teach and are motivational. Campers will play small sided games to expand their soccer skills for about half the day. The remainder of the time will be filled with activities to grow their catching, striking, wheeling, and jumping, like bench ball, baseball, basketball, strikeball, cricket, capture the flag, various relays, ultimate, and other Low Organized Games (LOG’s).
2. Is the camp outdoors all day?
Yes a large chunk of our days will be outdoors on the soccer fields, so come prepared. However, we do have use of the school gymnasiums, cafeteria and classrooms. This is great when we want to focus on indoor activities, in case of rain, or during extreme heat.
3. Will the camp be the same each week?
The general program will be similar each week. Some activities, other than soccer, may change slightly. Our counselors will target soccer activities to the level of the campers.
