Kelowna is set to go curling crazy this summer as hundreds of kids take part in a camp that includes coaching from Scotties champion Rachel Homan and B.C. men’s winner Jim Cotter of Vernon.

Rockslide Curling Camp, which takes place at Kelowna Curling Club from July 7-10, is celebrating its fifth birthday this year by staging the most fun-filled camp yet.

The four-day event allows kids aged 8-20 to try the sport, receive expert coaching and take part in team-building fun.

The camp offers young curlers the opportunity to learn from world-class staff including Scotties and Brier competitors, and coaches who have worked with provincial, national, Olympic and world champions.

Attendees will also have the chance to put everything they have learnt into practice during the post-camp bonspiel which goes July 10-12.
