Due to the coronavirus situation, the City of Peterborough will not be offering recreational programming and camps for children and youth as originally planned for this summer. This includes the PCSA Soccer Camp that is normally held at Eastgate Park in July. Registered participants will automatically be issued a full refund by the City. You can find more information about Summer Camp cancellations on the Peterborough City website.
About the PCSA Summer Soccer Camp
The Peterborough City Soccer Camp is offered cooperatively by the City of Peterborough Recreation Division and the Peterborough City Soccer Club.
The Peterborough City Soccer Club provides instruction and supervision for the summer soccer camp, as it has for many years. Peterborough City S.C. provides qualified coaches and instructors who can inspire a love of the sport while instilling confidence and self-esteem in young participants.
Camps are for a duration of one week and can be for half-days (5 – 6 year olds) or full-days (7 and up). The program runs for four weeks in July.
Full-day camps will include a lunchtime trip to Beavermead Park or Rogers Cove for a refreshing swim (water quality depending) or a soaking in the splashpad. The canteen is also available to purchase a nourishing hot lunch and snacks.
The camp continues with its highly successful format offering several different age and skill categories:
- Half Day Micro Soccer Camp for Ages 5 to 6 (week 1 and week 4)
- Full Day Mini Soccer Camp for ages 7 to 9
- Full Day Soccer Development Camp for ages 10 to 12
- Full Day “Just Girls” Camp for ages 7 to 14 (week 1 only)
- Full Day “Rep” Camp for ages U8 to U16 (week 2 and week 3)
- Full Day Goalkeeping Camp for ages 9 to 14 (week 3 only)
