Recently Capital One Rocks & Rings partnered with Bramalea Secondary School’s Leadership class to offer something a little different for a local elementary school. The High School kids were trained in curling and the different games and activities to teach to Grade 6 classes at the neighbouring elementary school.
It’s 8:30 a.m., the sun is just peeking out over the tree tops, the roads are bustling with working commuters, and school bus lights are flashing red. It’s 8:30 a.m. and I, a 19-year-old university student find myself at an unfamiliar elementary school in a rural town in beautiful New Brunswick. This has been a typical day for me since teaming up with the Capital One Rocks & Rings Program.
What a summer for Capital One Rocks & Rings! Despite curling ice having melted away kids were still learning about curling as we visited summer camps, birthday parties and even street festivals across Canada. It was a great way to beat the heat even though the temperatures were soaring.
Whitney Boles is the Toronto Rocks & Rings instructor and is in her second year with Rock Solid Productions. The Capital One Rocks & Rings program reached over 30 summer camps this July and August, and Whitney is here to share some of her summer camp curling adventures.
It has been a few years coming, but with rapid growth and schools requesting to repeat the Capital One Rocks & Rings Program year after year, we have developed a second year program to keep things fresh and advance the kids’ learning.
