That announcement was made last Friday by CurlSask. The camps are for Saskatchewan youth curlers age 13-18.

It will run Aug. 7-10 for the first camp, and Aug. 11-14 for the second.

The camps had previously been held in Nipawin the past nine summers. More details can be found at the website.

For Northland Power Curling Centre it means the facility will host even more summer curling than before.

Last August, the facility hosted the high-performance training centre for the first time, accommodating top curlers from across the province. That also meant putting the curling ice in far earlier than previous years.
According to the CurlSask website, the New Holland Prairieland camps August dates were selected to align with those of the high performance centre running at the same time this summer.

At a planning committee meeting Jan. 21, Mayor Ryan Bater welcomed the announcement of the curling camps and gave credit to Twin Rivers Curling Club for their efforts to attract training camps and major events to the community.

This organization is turning us into the capital city of curling in Saskatchewan, and contributing a lot to the community as a result, said Bater.
