VM Picks: Top Summer Break Camps, a Q&A with Elevate Ultimate

If you’re seeking a fun sport for your athlete, Elevate Ultimate is where it’s at. The academy provides a range of disc sports for kids aged 6 – 19 and school programs. Loved by 1000+ parents and 10,000+ kids for their high-energy coaches, they ensure the safest (but funnest!) experience. We connected with them to learn more about their summer camps.

Q&A: Elevate Ultimate Summer Camps

What is the mission and philosophy of your summer camp, and how does it align with Vancouver parents’ needs?

Our mission is to help kids find a community where they feel they truly belong. We achieve this through our positive and inclusive coaching staff, and engaging curriculum suitable for all skill-levels.

What sets your camp apart from others in the area?

Every day of camp is matches a skill with a value. Monday is about backhands and making new friends, Tuesday is about catching and teamwork. Each day starts with a discussion on the importance of that value, and all the drills or games that day are tied in with those values. For example, before a challenging catching drill, we might ask the campers, “What kinds of things does a good teammate do or say after a catch? What about a drop?”

Can you provide an overview of the activities and programs your camp offers during summer camp, and how they contribute to children’s development?

Our summer camp offers a diverse range of activities that contribute to children’s development. Each day includes values discussions, skill practices (like backhand and catching), and team games (like Frisbee Freeze Tag and Capture the Flag Ultimate) that promote physical fitness, coordination, and teamwork. We also have fun challenges and spirit games to encourage strategic thinking and sportsmanship. The day ends with shoutouts and a closing circle, fostering a sense of community.

Share success stories or testimonials from previous participants and their parents. How have children benefited from your camp?

“We love Elevate Ultimate and find the positivity in this program so rewarding. The coaches teach great skills while making it fun, great senses of humour, the kids are learning positive life collaboration and conflict resolution skills (ultimate is completely self-refereed), and the emphasis on respect and spirit is just so amazing. Not to mention the high degree of athleticism – the kids are getting a great workout too! We will keep coming back!” – Betty T
