Testimonials

Reagan, has attended Girl Power Hockey Camp the last 4 summers with this year being year 5. She comes back from camp a stronger hockey player and goalie each and every year. The staff at Girl Power is truly top notch and are extremely focused on the growth of each player in attendance. The goalie instruction provided at Girl Power is absolutely outstanding due to the specific focus they put on goaltenders. This camp is an amazing combination of hockey, friendships and summer time fun.  I’m so thankful that we found a camp where she has been treated as an individual with staff that are vested in her development.

“I was lucky enough to get into the 3-day camp, because there were so many kids wanting to attend and the week camp was full.
I learned so much in those three days, like how to shoot while skating, and had so much fun!
I also met many new friends, and am definitely going back!”

My daughter Genevieve has gone to the Girls Power Hockey Camp for the last 2 summers, and I am extremely happy with the results. What I am most impressed with is that Barb, Corey & staff coaches are great teachers. There are many great skaters out there – but to know how to Teach a skill is completely different than being able to perform a skill. Besides learning and improving her skills, Genevieve also really enjoys the dorm life and the Great Outdoors with the other skaters. She has a Blast meeting new girls and making new friends from around the hockey community. Every year when I pick her up – she is already making plans for the following year with her new friends. If you are looking for a Fun, High level Girls hockey camp – look no further. Barb and Corey do a Fantastic job of teaching skills and having FUN on and off the ice.
