Junior Summer Camp

The ECA Summer camp is for all Junior curlers (ages 8-18).  After the success of the Summer Camp in 2022 the ECA are now taking expressions of interest. 

This year’s Summer Camp runs from Saturday 26th August until Wednesday 30th August.

This year we have extended the camp to 5 days.  The Camp will be split between the Flower Bowl and Waddecar Scout Camp near Preston.

We are very excited to have secured the services of a fantastic Lead Curling Coach for the week in David ‘Rambo’ Ramsey who has worked with the very best.  Off the ice we have a number of outdoor activities planned which will involve working as part of a team, build confidence, make new friends and provide lots of fun.

As well as Junior Curlers we are also looking for additional curling coaches and helpers to be part of the camp staff.  The coaches have just as much fun as the campers.

If you are interested in joining us at the ECA Summer Camp either as a Junior Curler or as an adult coach or adult helper please get in touch and register your interest.

We are currently working on the price and will be submitting a DAP application (World Curling Federation funding for projects) once the 2023/24 season applications can be sent in.

Notes: 

  • Numbers are limited and notification of interest does not guarantee you a place on camp although those who do will have first option. 
  • Curlers who are aged between 18 and 21 who are also interested in joining us on camp please get in touch.

Newcomers Champions

Niall headed North to the Greenacres Curling rink just outside Glasgow to take part in a new comers event. The teams were made on the day and after a bit of coaching they had a tournament. Not only did Niall’s team get to the final they only went and won the event too!!! Well done Niall. Very courageous to go to Scotland not knowing anyone and then going and smashing it out of the park and coming home with the trophy.
