The long anticipated wait is over! After nearly two decades, several studies and plans, and one near tragedy turned opportunity, the Sylvan Lake Hockey Camp resides in their new home.
Following the collapse, in January of 2014, of the Sylvan Lake Arena – original home of the camp for 40 years – plans for a new facility were accelerated. Three years, two months and 11 days later the doors to the Town of Sylvan Lake’s new Nexsource Center opened and a new era for the Camp begins.
Skating on the new ice surface, precisely located where the original surface was, is only one component of the facility that will now allow the camp the flexibility to do all activities under one roof. Ample dry floor, complete with a running track for off ice training, state of the art classroom space, day meal and dormitory facilities and an indoor pool are the major assets for the program. Ideally, the Camp is still located one block from the Lakefront and weather permitting, as has been the history, most afternoon activities will still take advantage of those outdoor training amenities. Hard work in camp is balanced with some well deserved beach time or time at the new Sylvan Lake Aqua Splash Park!
Have a tour through the sliding images and see what we call our new home! Starting with walking in the front doors and down the hall to the concession area. The new ice surface, which we will have our ice time on, to the upstairs viewing area. The upstairs walking track* is great for those rainy days. The large meeting room and the room with the fridge and sink that will serve as our dorm room. The upstairs seating areas will serve as our lunch room. Finally the Hot Tub, Pool and Curling Rink and the proposed Children’s Indoor Play Area* which should be open by summer. We can’t wait to start our 43rd year in this long awaited facility!
*All require a facility pass to use.
