Send Us to Hockey in the Hood Camp
That's about all there is to it. Fun.
When School is out kids have Fun.
The question is how.
Hockey in the Hood Camp takes place the first week after school gets out. We like to have a summer kick off event like this to provide positive fun right away on summer break. Also, it is a great way for the Learn 2 Skate kids who are just joining DinoMights to begin their DinoMights career. After all they are fresh off of the Fun experience they had learning to skate, now is the perfect time to have fun beginning to play hockey, and being in a safe positive place with safe positive friends and adults.
The Camp is our own summer hockey clinic provided to all the DinoMights participants 8th grade and below. We spend most of our time teaching and learning hockey skills. We do our best to make it every bit as enjoyable and valuable as a high end summer clinic at a cost of about $30 per kid. (A high end clinic in Minnesota may cost around $400).
Most of all, Hockey in the Hood Camp is Fun. We always do some fun relay races. Last year we did a tractor pull. Kids were paired up and they had to pull their friend along with their sticks. We also had a parachute for the mites. The kids could skate under the chute, throw their gloves on top, it was a lot of fun.
This year we are going to have a special visitor to our camp. Nordy, the mascot of the Minnesota Wild is going to come and have a Fun time with the DinoMights.
The point is that it is good fun, safe fun, positive fun, fun in a caring community of friends and adults. Kids will find fun one way or another. For the kids that come to Hockey in the Hood Camp we know that they are getting their summer off to a positive, safe, Fun start.
