CURLSASK’s Prairieland Curling Camp has been a fixture on the Saskatchewan summer scene since 1986. The camp began in Lumsden, moved to Kindersley and is now in Nipawin, SK.
There are two fun filled four days sessions available to campers aged 13 – 18. Early to mid-July is the usual time frame for camp.
The camp provides six different of skills groups so whether you are new to the sport or are striving to win a U18 or High School championship, there is a group of curlers just like you. Lots of curling campers attend with a friend who is new to the sport because there is so much more than just curling instruction because recreation and socializing are a huge part of camp.
Campers come from all over the province ranging from The Big City to Tiny Town, Saskatchewan. Friendships and connections are made here and held on to for many years. Many of the on-ice instructors are former curling campers themselves. They keep coming back to teach because they had so much fun once upon a time that they want to make sure that all the campers have the same fun they had.
CURLSASK enlists the talents of the best instructors in Saskatchewan. These people have been around, so to speak, and they know their stuff. A ratio of 1 instructor for every 8 campers is the rule and then there is one on-ice assistant for every sheet of ice. Every camper gets lots of individual attention.
