Low Camp Tuition – Camp tuition is dictated by ice cost and the level of host Association partnership. MHC players will benefit from a discount generated by our partnership with MHC.
Local MHC Involvement – MHC is to provide Planet Hockey with (1) “Point of Contact” to have continued dialog on recruitment and ongoing promotional support (electronic and ‘snail’ mailings, newsletters, listing on MHC website, etc.) ensuring maximum camp participation. Additional support at each specific age division is encouraged. Planet Hockey will provide 2018 USA Camp brochures, posters and a listing on our website with online registration. Note: Planet Hockey will provide MHC with a special discounted tuition. Registrations must be received through our website. The Discount Code will be supplied to MHC, immediately upon agreed “partnership” and will be valid until the camp fills. Our system will track all registrants, will automatically apply the discount and will send a confirmation letter via email. We also ask your association to help find our Staff “host” families to house us during camp.
Sample Daily Schedule
Camp Add-ons (optional)
• Coaching Clinic available. No charge at 64+ players.

We look forward to confirming details and to working with you to bring a top-quality Planet Hockey Skills Camp to Mandan this summer.
