The entire camp is open to the public (complete on-ice schedule and roster will be announced at a later date) with a scrimmage set for Saturday, July 14, at 10 a.m.

In addition to the scrimmage, Fan Fest will feature the team’s annual equipment sale, activities for children of all ages, including a moon bounce, Slapshot cage, an obstacle course, street hockey and airbrush artists and face painters.
