Trillium Curling Camp

Trillium Curling Camp - About Us

TRILLIUM CURLING CAMP IS NOW SOLD OUT!  You may still add yourself to the waitlist however there is no guarantee you will get a spot. Spots only open if registrants drop out.  Please check out our sister camp, Amethyst which runs in North Bay in July.  There are still spots open there.  

The Trillium Curling Camp is a premier curling experience for curlers aged 12 1/2 to 18.  Curlers must be 12 years of age as of Dec. 31 2023 and no older than 18 as of the start of camp.  The camp runs two separate but identical weeks in August.  Camp starts Sunday evening and runs all week until Friday afternoon. Since 2014, the camp has been held at the KW Granite Curling Club in Waterloo, Ontario. While at the camp, campers reside at the Waterloo College Hall residence at Wilfrid Laurier University.  

Campers can expect a first-class curling experience at the camp, led by knowledgeable and certified instructors, as well as few curling celebrities! Some of the stars seen at the camp in the past include Kaitlyn Lawes, John Epping, Reid Carruthers, David Murdoch, and Laura Walker. Who knows who’ll show up next!

The camp is more than just curling training. Our mission is to provide a memorable, fun and positive experience while at the same time making a significant impact on their curling development. We place a high priority on the experience as whole and make considerable efforts to include activities that encourage kids to make new friends and generally enjoy their time with us.

What are campers going to learn? The camp will build on what the athletes bring with them so kids need to have 1-2 years of experience before coming to camp. Unfortunately, Trillium isn’t for athletes who are new to the game. Our coaches will work on everything from delivery mechanics to brushing technique on the ice. Off the ice they’ll work on a variety of topics such as team dynamics, fitness, communication, strategy and so much more!

Suggested Packing List

Trillium is an individual camp and not a team camp. Individuals are sorted into colour groups based on their age and stage of development which helps ensure campers will be learning alongside others at a similar level to themselves. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate requests for teams to be placed in the same colour groups, nor can we accommodate requests for individuals to be placed in the same groups as others.  Given the size of the camp this isn’t feasible to manage.  One of the primary goals of the camp is for campers to meet new people and this helps to facilitate that.

Trillium Camp Registration

Trillium is now CLOSED.  You may still add yourself to the waitlist however there is no guarantee of spots opening.   This year will be a little different as the camp will be held at the Albert McCormick Community Centre in Waterloo.  Campers will still be staying at the Waterloo Hall (Laurier) residence and will be bused to the venue each day.  The bus ride is only about 7 minutes from residence to the arena.  Prior to the camp, Curling Canada will be installing dedicated curling ice in the arena for the camp and so curlers will get to train on arena ice conditions.  

It’s going to be a great time and we hope you’ll join us in Waterloo.

Week A – Aug. 11 – 16

Week B – Aug. 18 – 23

Stay tuned for more information on our social channels and join our mailing list.

All curlers will need a Curler Profile in order to register.  Also, all attendees will be required to complete a profile and requirements on the Sideline Learning Platform prior to attending camp.  Details will be sent after registration is complete.
