Jenn Heil Girls Camp

Each year girls from across Canada are invited to attend the Jenn Heil Girls Camp. Heil, who is a native of Spruce Grove, Alberta, began her camp in 2006, after she won Olympic gold in Torino. “Realizing what a difference it made for me to know people who had accomplished their goals, goals that I had been dreaming of since I was a child, made me want to offer that experience to young girls.” Heil has amassed a team of first-rate coaches for the camp, all of whom are donating their time, including her National Team teammates This year’s camp includes two days of on-snow training and educational seminar with a nutritionist. The weekend ends with a fun competition and lots of prizes for the girls. “Really, the idea is to create an atmosphere where the girls can feel really well supported, can have fun meet other girls who share their passion for skiing” said Heil.

"If you ever wonder if you make a difference in the lives of these girls, check out what my daughter Lia wrote on her chalkboard after returning from her weekend with you...." My girls still haven't stopped talking about their weekend.
