North Battleford, SK

Camp #1: August 7-10, 2019

Camp #2: August 11-14, 2019

CURLSASK’s Prairieland Curling Camp has been a fixture on the Saskatchewan summer scene since 1986. The camp began in Lumsden, moved to Kindersley, was situated in Nipawin the past nine years & now will make its first appearance in North Battleford at the Twin Rivers Curling Club!

There are two fun filled four days sessions available to campers aged 13 – 18. We have now moved the camp from mid-July to mid-August to align with our High Performance Center, also held at the Twin Rivers Curling Club!

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.  Recreation and socializing are also huge parts of the 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 there is also one on-ice assistant for every sheet of ice. Every camper gets lots of individual attention.
