About Us

Message From Directors Kim & Adam Grin

Together we founded Winning Techniques Camp over 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 65 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.

In 2020 our family completed a circumnavigation of the world aboard SV Grin (pictured above). The video below is our daughter Elly’s story as told by the CBC.

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!

Why Winning Techniques Camp?

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.

about-why

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.

Life at Camp

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 5 specialty Camp such as Figure Skating, Hockey, Adventure, 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 Maverick Cabins house up to 8 campers in each room with an adjacent camp counsellor suite. Our spacious main lodge is a great common area and social centre for evening activities.
