Another summer has come and gone. Thank you to the crew for being such fantastic role models. Thank you to the campers for embracing "The Top 8 Skills". Thank you to the parents for allowing your family to become part of our camp family. CHEERS!
Together we founded Winning Techniques Camp nearly twenty years ago as a place for young people to learn and grow. Throughout the years, our camp has evolved into a "family" in two ways. First, our children, Carl and Elly, have grown up in camp, and found their own special fit here. Now, our family has also extended to all of those who spend their summers with us at camp. We are so humbled that our camp has become what we envisioned for it so many years ago: a place of inclusion and acceptance where confidence, happiness and friendships bloom.
Being the Directors of Winning Techniques Camp is much more than a job for us. Our passion is in providing a safe, fun, and exciting place for positive growth, and we put everything we can into making sure our camp is just that. Overall, we want to inspire kids to be the best they can be. Together we bring over 50 years of experience in coaching and mentoring children to our roles as Camp Directors. We aim to teach more than athletic skill - we believe in motivating people to try their best, reach their goals, and learn valuable life skills through sport.
Thank you for taking the time to consider our camp as your next summer camp adventure. We invite you to take a stroll through our website to explore our many programs and opportunities, and meet our team. We hope to see you next summer!
While we are a sports camp, we believe there is much more than learning skills and doing drills when it comes to our programming. Here at Winning Techniques we aim to foster acceptance and growth through our camp community, and specialized programs.
With a team of staff members who grew up at Winning Techniques, our atmosphere feels like one big family where everyone is included! We work together to allow children to learn alongside friends who feel like family in a place that feels like home.
We accept any person of any skill level, from the beginner to the elite athlete, Winning Techniques Camp offers programming for all. We maintain a low staff to camper ratio at 1:4, and provide professional instruction by highly qualified coaches. Every camper goes home with a wealth of new knowledge and skills. Additionally, as a proud member of the Ontario Camps Association, we adhere to over 675 standards and guidelines. We take the responsibility of caring for your children very seriously.
We are located on a picturesque 23.5 acre site 15 minutes north of Huntsville, Ontario. Beautiful Clear Lake provides the perfect backdrop for a summer full of exciting, and rewarding camp experiences.
Campers spend half of the day participating in one of our 7 specialty programs such as Figure Skating, Hockey, Adventure, Dance, Horseback Riding, Intense Water Sports or Leadership. The rest of the day is spent enjoying traditional camp activities, including archery, canoeing, fishing, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, waterskiing, wake boarding and so much more.
Our Bunkhouse and Main Lodge house 4-8 campers in each room with an adjacent camp counselor suite. Our spacious main lodge is a great common area and social centre for evening activities. Parents of our campers may choose to rent one of our cottages or campsites.
Coralea and Melanie had a wonderful week waterskiing, swimming and skating. They really enjoyed taking part in all the fun camp activities that were planned. The cottage was great! We look forward to seeing you next summer.

Just wanted to let you know that Garry and I had a lovely very relaxing time at your camp. The girls enjoyed their camp activities & the group of friends they made immensely.
It was a great experience for them and I know they will want to repeat.

During the two weeks I stayed here I had the most fun I had all summer! What I loved most was the countless activities, awesome campers, and hilarious counsellors.
I really look forward to coming back next year.
My favourite memory from Winning Techniques was when I first arrived and was received like a family member.
