Throughout the fall, winter and spring, we welcome schools from low-income neighbourhoods for two distinct four day, three night trips to camp to participate in our Community Leaders Program. Students leave their school community to participate in camp experiences designed to develop life and leadership skills which provide the building blocks for youth engagement.
Between camp visits, students challenge themselves with constructive actions and each group creates their own community service project. The program inspires students to instill positive cultural change in their schools and fosters a commitment to making their communities better places.
