Merrill Camps

Our Northwoods Summer Camps are a fun and exciting camp that is designed to develop the skills for success while in a safe and fun environment. These clinics  include skating, puck possession, hockey IQ drill, situation awareness, and constraint games! Our on ice sessions will blend skills together that challenge them and constantly keep our young skater engaged.

A portion of our clinic will focus on skating.  Players will be introduced to proper stance, balance, and stride techniques while also working on their inside and outside edges. 

Our summer camps spend time focusing on puck possession which includes, stickhandling, deception, hand placement, and body positioning.  

 The biggest area for our summer camps is our constraint game program which finds way to handicap and challenge skaters in fun competitive small area games. We believe in skaters learning skills through competition 

August ALL PURPOSE CAMP: August 5th-8th
