This is probably my daughter's favorite part of Hudson College- the extracurricular opportunities. This year she is learning to code and to cook, she has joined in extra sports (skiing, indoor soccer, ball hockey) and she gets to make friends across the grades. In the past, she's learnt chess and robotics. It does mean she has to be extra-focused to get her homework done, but she absolutely loves this part of her school life. Another wonderful opportunity is the annual trip to Camp Muskoka for Grades 4,5, and 6. They spend four days in a beautiful outdoor environment learning independence and important life skills, having tons of fun and bonding like crazy! Grades 7 and 8 attend Camp Wanakita earlier in the term.
Robotics, cooking, chess, languages - essentially if there is an interest in the club - the school will create it. The school sports teams compete (and are competitive) against other small independent schools. Skiing, basketball, skating, martial arts, volleyball etc all are offered. If you are looking for your child to be exposed to a wide range of sports and activities this school is ideal. If you have an elite athlete than these teams are not the place. Participation, athleticism, sportsmanship and skills are equally emphasized - with a healthy dose for the desire to win.
