Holiday Hockey Camps

Make this holiday season truly memorable with an Ottawa Senators Holiday Hockey Camp! Our hockey camps provide world-class instruction both on and off the ice, in a fun and supportive atmosphere designed to develop game-changing skills and improve each player's enjoyment of the game.

Our full-day camps feature 2.5 hours of ice time daily (for ages Novice through Peewee), with a format and philosophy that matches our popular Ottawa Senators Summer Hockey Camps. We also offer a full-day option for the Initiation & Fundamentals age group at both the Bell Sensplex and Richcraft Sensplex.

Our Holiday Hockey Camps are a great way to make sure your children hone their hockey skills, have a terrific Christmas break, and stay active during their time away from school.
