NOTE: The Ontario Curling Council is holding a “BIPOC Summer Curling Camp Lottery.” Three young curlers who identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Colour, will have their registration fees for the Trillium or Amethyst Curling Camps paid for, thanks to a grant from Curling Canada. The deadline to enter the lottery is March 13th, 2023. Winners will be chosen at random and contacted directly.
