2020 Prairieland Curling Camp Cancelled

North Battleford, SK

Camp #1: August 5-8, 2020

Camp #2: August 9-12, 2020

UPDATE JULY 13, 2020:

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Prairieland Curling Camp. This decision was not made lightly and we have worked hard to seek alternative solutions. However, in light of the current situation and the restrictions on indoor events, we do not feel we can deliver a camp that would withhold to the standards we are all accustomed to.
We are working on alternative solutions including a virtual speaker series, or smaller regional type versions of camp in the fall. We are also trying to preserve the early ice option with a September install.
CURLSASK offers its sincere thanks to the camp instructors and staff, its sponsors and partners, including the Twin Rivers Curling Club and all of whom were eager to host the players and their families in the community as per tradition. To all the curlers who were signed up and hopeful to attend, we wish you a safe and wonderful summer and hope to see you in 2021!

 

ABOUT THE PRAIRIELAND CURLING CAMP

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. Our camp now runs in 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.
