Junior Lifeguard Camp – Sunday, August 17

Does Lifeguarding interest your child? The Rossland Pool Staff is hosting a mini camp for Youth ages 7+ who are interested in learning lifeguard skills in a fun and active way. Your child will learn independence in the water, basic first aid skills and water safety skills – important skills for safe summers!


Rossland Swimming Pool

The Rossland Swimming Pool is a great place to be when it’s hot out! The Staff are super and the water is refreshing – come down to the Pool to cool off! Public Swim is daily from 1:00-4:00pm and Family Swim is from 4:00-5:30pm. The Pool closes on Tuesday, August 26 – less than two weeks from now! If you haven’t been for a refreshing dip, now’s your chance!


French Adventure Camp: August 25-29

This week long camp is a perfect way to support the emerging French speaker. Campers will have fun doing something interesting every day while listening, speaking and practicing their French skills. Brogan Pastro will lead this camp with assistance from other local Youth who are fluent in French. The Camp runs from 1:00-3:30pm each day, for Youth ages 11-14 years.

Fall Fair – Saturday, September 6

The Fall Fair and Art Show exhibit entry brochure is available around town! Look for the bright yellow paper with “Rossland Fall Fair and Art Show” on the front. Lots of great categories for entry, for children to adults! With the Schools potentially opening late this year, the first week of September might be a perfect opportunity to create entries for multiple categories!


Golden City Days

The GCD Committee is looking for a community group who would like to host the children’s event on the Golden City Day’s weekend. The Committee welcome the addition of all family/children’s events on the Saturday and Sunday and any individual or group who would like to organize an event are encouraged to email; rbrinson@telus.net.


Church of Dirt Trail Building

Once again, the Monday Night Church of Dirt will be building sweet single-track in 2014. Come out and get dirty, meet great folks young and old, and add to our fantastic trail system.   Build nights start May 12th and will continue every Monday for the season.  We will meet at 5:30 pm each Monday in the Centennial Trail-head parking lot. Our build nights will focus in the Monte Cristo / Columbia Kootenay area since it is easy for people to get to on a week night. No experience needed – just a passion for the mountains and the pleasure of riding or hiking what you have worked on. We will meet for a social after each build night at the Steam Shovel. Reminders, updates, and location will be posted on the Bhubble before each build night.


Rossglen Bike Park Revitalization Project

Rossland’s Rossglen Bike Park is getting a facelift to reflect the changing desires of local mountain bike users. Rossglen has been a fixture for the biking community for the past eight years but is in need of upgrades and expansion, and a group of volunteers are working with the City of Rossland to see that happen this summer. In addition to new wood features, the jump lines will be rebuilt with beginner and intermediate tabletop lines. The pump track, which is comprised of a loop of tight berms, rollers and features, will be built in phases as funding and volunteer hours are available. In addition, the large wall ride at the park is getting refurbished and will be utilized for a youth graffiti art project funded by the Youth Action Network (YAN). Volunteer build days will occur early in the summer and anyone interested is encouraged to attend and lend a hand in the revitalization project.
