The camp takes place at the Naseby Adventure Park. Each day participants receive two instructed sessions, one each for ice skating (figure skating or ice hockey) and luge, and by the end of the week should be able to skate and luge. There will also be opportunities to curl. This camp is a great introduction to the ice sports and/or an opportunity to gain new skills and experiences.
Single day attendance is permitted. The camp is a day camp and there is accommodation available in Naseby.
Things to know about the camp are:• Clothing – it is winter and we are outside. Warm tighter fitting clothing, thermal underwear is a must, and try to avoid bulky ski jackets. Layers are always good. Tighter fitting sweat pants or tights over long-johns work really well.• Footwear – we supply luge boots and skates. Runners are fine for curling but bring a change of socks. No gumboots!• Gloves – essential, ski/snowboard gloves are fine but they will take a battering on the ice so bring old ones rather than new ones. Having two pairs is good as they get wet. • Helmets - we have a supply of helmets but if you have a ski/snowboard helmet please bring it along.• Lunch - we stop for an hour for lunch (noon) and use the Patearoa Lounge at the Ice Rink to eat in and also keep our dry clothes, bags etc. Bring a healthy lunch which can be supplemented with food and drinks from the canteen which has pies, chips, soup, toasted sandwiches etc and a range of drinks, so bring a few $$$ for that. The canteen volunteers will also heat up food if they are asked nicely.
