This goal-based active program is aimed at athletic development. Participants will receive coaching from instructors who will help guide athletes to achieve their performance goals through specialized sports programs. Participants will have the opportunity to choose from hockey, soccer or water sports as their discipline, and will participate in their chosen specialty every morning. During the remainder of the day, they will participate in other fun recreational programs at CNIB Lake Joe.

Note: This program is open to children and youth who are CNIB participants as well as their sighted siblings and friends.

Important program points:

  • Blind Hockey registrants: This is an introduction program for blind hockey. The focus will be on skill development with less emphasis on game play. Participants in the blind hockey program are expected to possess basic skating skills and have the necessary hockey equipment, including protective gear such as chest, pants, and shin guards, elbow pads, gloves, a neck guard, mouthguard, helmet, as well as skates and a stick. If equipment is a concern and would limit the ability to participate in the program, please reach out to Emily Harrison, Lead, Guest Experience at
  • Watersports registrants: The watersports program will be focused on waterskiing and wakeboarding. Participants are required to have basic swimming skills and must be able to lift their own body weight out of the water and onto a platform. Participants are not required to bring their own water ski or wakeboard equipment. All equipment will be provided.
