Summer Camps (Recreational and Competitive)


The Ottawa Gloucester Hornets will once again be offering 7 weeks of recreational camps in July and August 2019.

The camp is available to all children ages 5-12 and is led by experienced Hornets Coaching Staff.

The camp is located at the Hornets Nest, with full access to our state of the art fields and dome.

The camp focuses on developing soccer skills and providing extra touches on the ball, while also offering a multitude of activities and games to complement the sport of soccer. Campers will be grouped based on size, age and ability. This Camp is not intended for competitive players.

Does your child take medication?

If your child takes medication, make sure it is given to a counselor immediately. All medication, vitamins, must be stored with the camp counselors, the first aid stations where it is available and administered safely.

Clearly label the medication with your children's name, exact dosage and what time should be administered.

If your child requires an EpiPen, send two with them - one to be stored in the First Aid station and one to be carried by the child's camp counselor.


Our competitive Elite summer camps curriculum are created from our Canadian National B Level Certified Lead Technical Director and our TD Team.  Theme's and specific daily session plans are created to center around individual player development and to ensure players maximize time on the ball as well as a fun, positive environment.
