Benchmark Hockey is hosting a five-day camp that will be held at South Kent School. The goal of the camp is to provide boys and girls to develop their hockey skills on and off the ice, with coaches who have coached at the youth, junior, collegiate (NCAA Division 1 and 3), and professional level.


Benchmark Hockey's boarding camp will be a terrific opportunity for your son or daughter to develop their hockey skills on and off the ice. We will provide kids in the area and from abroad with exposure to excellent coaching, while enjoying the beginning of summer with friends on and off the ice. 


Camp Dates and Hours


The camp will be held for two weeks from June 25-30 and July 2-7. Boarding campers will arrive at 12PM on Sunday, June 25, 2023. If campers are traveling from abroad by themselves, we will coordinate a pick-up from one of the following airports: Hartford/Bradley International Airport (BDL), Westchester County/White Plains (HPN), New York Laguardia (LGA), or New York John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK). Once registered, campers will receive a confirmation email along with a schedule of on ice and off ice activities. If at any moment a question comes to mind, please don't hesitate to call us at: 860-671-7177.


Location and Amenities


The camp will be held at South Kent School. The facilities that the camp will use are Brown Gymnasium, John and Sandi Farr Field, Fathers Field, Guilder Dormitory, and the Admiral James and Sybil Stockdale arena. 


Activities at the Camp


Campers will have three hours of on-ice instruction per day, and four hours of off-ice activities. On-ice and off-ice activities will be organized and supervised by our coaching staff. 


Off-ice activities: stick handling games, shooting skill work, basketball, team building, dodge ball, whiffle ball, kick ball, soccer, frisbee, swimming, fishing, golf, street hockey, and much much more. We will spend Wednesday, June 28th and July 5th, during the afternoon doing a variety of outdoor activities. We will have slip n slides and an inflatable obstacle course near the lagoon at the bottom of the hill at South Kent School. 


On-ice activities: power skating, skill work/stick handling, small area games, scrimmage, and goalie specific instruction, and much much more.


Equipment, Clothing, Bedding, and Overnight Supplies Required. 

Full hockey equipment is required. All campers need to bring their own off-ice workout gear (shorts, sneakers and t-shirt). South Kent School does not have a Pro-Shop so please prepare in advance. Skate sharpening will be available. 

Some things to bring:

For the Room:

Bath and Bedding: 

Bath towels


Toiletry items (e.g., toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc.)

Comforter or quilt

For the camp: 

Athletic Clothing (5 days worth: socks, shorts, pants, shirts, etc.)

Skill Level Required 


Players must possess basic hockey skills such as skating and stick handling. Camp instructors will focus on developing the skills of beginner, and intermediate level players, while improving the skill sets of advanced level players. Goalies will receive goalie-specific instruction on and off the ice.


Camp Health Forms


Upon receipt of camper’s application and payment, campers will then be asked to submit a copy of the their most recent physical (within 36 months). Immunizations must be up-to-date (it is usually just a box that can be checked on the physical form). If the child requires medication to be administered during the camp, we need permission. An Authorization for the Administration of Medication form must be completed and signed by the health care provider and the parent/guardian.
