The camp is organized and operated by Hockey Ministries International. HMI is a registered Christian charity in Canada and the U.S. Since 1977, HMI has been active in every area of hockey: players, coaches, families, and fans- through camps, chapels, clinics, and conferences. HMI has been conducting camps all over North America and Europe for over 30 years. This is the fourth year of hosting a camp in Texas.


Drills from seven countries create an International hockey program: campers are introduced to practice drills that are drawn from Canada, USA, Sweden, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Russia and Switzerland creating a global hockey instruction package.

Christian Hockey Camps International have many gifted instructors who come from a wide variety of hockey backgrounds. They include current and former NHL players, AHL, Minor Pro, European, and Universtiy level players and coaches.

Combining high quality hockey instruction and practical training in Christian living has proven to be a winning combination in preparing young athletes for challenges, both on and off the ice. Each day, the devotional introduces the "game plan" for the day - a theme from the Hockey Player's Handbook. This theme is followed in the daily Christian value discussion when counselors meet with their groups and discuss a number of topics related to life's inevitable challenges. Finally, the evening chapel features a youth-oriented program of music, skits and inspirational talks by the pros.

The Bucks will start their eighth season in the Gateway City in October, and will host the 2010 CHL All-Star game January 13th. Season tickets start at under $6.50 per game. Call 718-BUCK (2825) to order.
