What are the COVID-19 Protocols?
The health and safety of youth participants is our top priority. Please review the Fifth Third Arena's COVID-19 protocols and facility updates HERE.
How long should I expect my child to be at the rink each day?
Please refer to the 2021 Chicago Blackhawks Summer Camp schedule above. We ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes before your first session on the first day, however this is subject to change due to COVID protocols at the facility on that date. We will email more specific instructions prior to the start of camp.
What will the on-ice sessions consist of?
On-ice sessions will be geared toward skills such as power-skating, edgework, agility, puck-handling and shooting. Participants will also work on team skills in 1v1, 2v2 and scrimmages. On the last day of camp (Friday), we will play a variety of games, which is always a fun day for parents and siblings to come watch!
What will the campers do when not on the ice?
Campers will also enjoy:
Is lunch included?
While there is a lunch break, food is not included in the registration price. Depending on the camp location and COVID-19 protocols at the time, there may be a concession stand or vending options. We will also give the option of a catered lunch each day for purchase. Participants are also free to bring their own nut-free food to enjoy during the week. Be sure to pack plenty of snacks and fluids in addition to lunch!
Can I sign up for more than one camp?
Yes! As long as space is available.
Is full equipment required?
Yes. Youth participants are required to bring their own full equipment, including:
How much experience does my child need?
Any amount of experience is welcome! However, to maximize each child's experience, he or she may be asked to skate in a different age group depending on their skill level.
Will any Blackhawks players will be at the camps?
Due to players' schedules and current NHL protocols, we cannot guarantee any players at camp, but we will do our best to invite them out if they are in town. However, we will have Blackhawks Alumni and/or Team USA members as special guests at various camps.
