Today is Pink Shirt Day!

The world can be a negative place sometimes, lowering self-esteem and creating bullying behaviour. Today at Stelly's we want to change that! Let's all take a pledge and stand up to Bullying! Lets be kind to our peers and show random acts of kindness! Remember no act of kindness is ever wasted! Lets make Stelly's “THE PEOPLE PLACE” we claim it to be!

Congratulations to Stelly's climbers who competed at the Canadian bouldering championships on the weekend. This was a 3 day competition against the best climbers in the country. Special congratulations to Jana Heinz, Elena Moss and Finn Battersby who made finals in their categories.
