The "Q Camp" replaces the NAPS Elite Camp in Buffalo and will feature air-conditioned dorm rooms, kitchenettes in dorm rooms & close proximity to rink (walking distance)


Participants receive on-ice instruction, lectures & video sessions from a variety of NHL, NCAA D1 & Major Junior coaches & scouts throughout the entire week.  Players will work on their Hockey IQ (learning the final details of the game) as well as individual on-ice skills daily.  Furthermore, this camp resembles a professional training camp where prospects will be pushed to perform both mentally & physically to compete at a higher level.  This is a camp for the determined and dedicated hockey player.  In addition, this camp serves as a great evaluation forum for players to be seen by our Selects coaching staff for a future opportunity to play on a Select team.  For more details, please see below.

Note: During the registration process, you will see two different options for the Q Camp (boarding & non-boarding). Please select the appropriate one. (You can always change to boarding or non-boarding at a later date by notifying the Camp Director via email)

The dorms ARE air-conditioned and feature kitchenettes for those boarding overnight

Supervision & Safety

The student-to-staff ratio is approximately 4 to 1. There are 2-4 campers in each dorm room at Monroe Community College (depending on the size of the room). ALL camp coaches, counselors, & Coordinators board in the University dorms (where the players are), providing 24 hour supervision. Lastly, there is a Hall Monitor for the dorm facilities for additional supervision.

Rooming Request

Please note that Rooming Requests will NOT be accepted. There are two reasons for this:

  1. Our coaching staff has specifically requested to try and room players unfamiliar with each other as this will help them to bond quicker and mature as well. These coaches, many from the NHL level who have children of their own, find a lot of value in this.
  2. Due to the volume of campers and these requests, it is just not possible to accommodate room requests.
