Shortly after you arrive at the Bellagio Hotel to register for the Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp, you'll be ushered into a large room containing mountains of NHL-quality gear. Customized for guests and colour-coordinated to match the year's theme, it's an early sign of the incredible lengths organizers go to in replicating the pro hockey experience.
Every attendee is treated to the full pro-hockey experience.
After being fitted for your equipment, you'll be invited to attend the opening reception and wine tasting - your first chance to rub shoulders with NHL alumni, and your last chance to meet, mingle with and size up your opponents before the puck drops.
On day two, you and the other guests will be evaluated on the ice and divided up into teams. Players of every skill level are welcome at the Camp, and the NHLers split their talents among the different squads to ensure a level playing field.
And then the games begin.
Over the next five days, you'll shoot, pass, and trash talk your way through an intense contest against some of the NHL's most diehard fans and distinguished alumni - all in an effort to have your name permanently etched onto the Wayne Gretzky Cup (on display at the Great One's restaurant in downtown Toronto).
From professional trainers and medical rooms to practice sessions and coaches, every essential detail of life in the NHL has been replicated in an effort to create the ultimate fantasy hockey experience. Simply put, it's a week you'll remember for the rest of your life.
And for the diehard hockey fan, there's nothing else like it.
For an additional fee, Camp attendees are invited to bring along a guest for the week. Please contact us at the phone number or e-mail address below for more details.
Proceeds from the Wayne Gretzky Fantasy Camp are donated to the Wayne Gretzky Foundation.
