The Northern Hockey School youth camps are 
open to players of all genders, and skill levels with
birth years falling between 2008-2015.Three
separate youth camps are run concurrently split
into birth years of 2005-2010, 2011-2012, and 
2013-15. Each age group will receive two ice times 
per day, a dry land training session, a dry surface
skill development session and a game/education
session. There will be time set aside each day for a
snack and lunch. All players will receive a Northern
