Whistler, BC: Kids in the Sea to Sky Corridor can look forward to a new, exciting summer camp opportunity: Together with the Whistler Sports Academy, Whistler Olympic Park will offer Olympic Combo Camps in July and August.  The camps are designed to introduce children to Olympic winter and summer sports like biathlon, ski jumping, luge and archery.  In addition to Olympic sports, other fun outdoor activities and games will be part of the program.  Camp dates are July 21 - 25, July 28 - August 1, August 11 – 15, and August 18 – 22.  The cost for a 5-day camp is $329 (plus GST), which includes transportation to/from Whistler Olympic Park, pickup and drop-off is at the Whistler Athletes’ Centre in Cheakamus Crossing.

“The kids will be able to try exciting Olympic sports which are only offered in a few places in Canada. This is a great opportunity to get more children involved with those activities, and some of our participants may even become future Olympic athletes!” says John Heilig, Sport Manager of Whistler Olympic Park.  Jamie Grant, Director of Whistler Sports Academy, is looking forward to the camp period: “I am glad we partnered up with Whistler Olympic Park. The venue is simply beautiful and guarantees lots of outdoor fun. It gives the kids the unique opportunity to learn and train where Olympic Games actually happened.”
