Ravens Sports Camp

Carleton Ravens Sports Camp is a fun and friendly day camp in the heart of Ottawa. The sports camp keeps kids occupied and active during summer holidays with a range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Details of our Summer Sports Camps can be found below. Information on our fall and winter activities can be found on our PD Day Camps, Holiday Camps, March Break Camps and Junior Ravens program pages.

New for 2017: for the first time will be offering two weeks of girls-only sports camp in late July and early August. See table below for dates and times. Our traditional one and two week coed sports camps are available for all 9 weeks of summer.

Sports Camp Activities:

The aim of this camp is to provide boys and girls daily instruction and participation in a wide range of sports including:

Other activities may include arts and crafts and co-operative games. Campers will participate in up to 10 different activities during each 1-week camp. The specific activities vary from week to week but we are not able to guarantee that a particular age group will participate in any specific activity in any given week.


The Sports Camps makes use of the full range of Carleton University’s modern indoor and outdoor facilities, so there is no need to worry about kids being bored if the weather turns bad. Each day we prepare two complete schedules, one including outdoor activites for good days and the other for wet or excessively hot days which takes place entirely indoors. The facilities used include Raven Field, Raven’s Nest Gym, Fieldhouse, Olympic-sized swimming pool with diving well, squash courts, multipurpose and combatives rooms, tennis bubble, and the Norm Fenn Gymnasium.

What’s Included

The registration fee includes a T-shirt, a daily cafeteria lunch and recreational swim. Two week and one week session registration is available.

Children born in 2002-2010. (Any child who has been in Grades 1-9 during the 2016-16 school year)

The sports camps are divided into 9-12 groups with an age range of between 1 and 3 years. Parents can request for campers to be placed in the same group as their friends by using the “specific group requests” section of the online registration form.

Children born in 2011 or 2012 should register for our Mini-Ravens camp. Children born in 2010 can register for either Sports Camp or Mini Ravens Camp.

A daily recreational swim is included as part of the programming for Sports Camp and our specialty camps. Swim lessons are not included in our sports camp or specialty camps. Our mini-ravens camps includes a daily swim lesson rather than a recreational swim.
