Summer hockey camps starting

Hockey schools and training camps are on the ice at Summerland's arena.

Now that the hot weather has arrived, it is time for hockey players to don their skates and get on the ice.

Once again, several hockey camps and hockey schools will be held in Summerland over the summer months.

“For the next 10 days, we’re putting in the ice,” said Brenda Ingram, assistant director of recreation for the municipality.

“After that, it’s going to be a hub of activity for the next six weeks.”

On July 13, the Summerland Steam will hold a weekend training camp. This is the first of the summer hockey camps.

On July 16, B.C. Hockey will hold a one-week camp for players of all ages.

From July 22 to Aug. 4, the Gold in the Net camp for goaltenders will be held.

From Aug. 5 to 10, the European Hockey School Bulldogs will have a hockey camp.

This camp is for higher level Midget players.

From Aug. 11 to 18, the Cyclone Taylor MacGillivray hockey camp will be held.

The hockey camp season concludes with a second Summerland Steam training camp beginning Aug. 19.

After the Labour Day weekend, the regular minor hockey and figure skating programs will be in place.
