LEAP – Leaders in Training/Counselors in Training

LEAP ProgramThe LEAP –  LIT – Leaders in Training and CIT – Counsellors in Training programs are designed for campers 12 to 16 years of age who are preparing for their first volunteer and or work experience. Participants will learn about what it takes to lead, how to work effectively in a team, effective communication, behaviour management and much more. Participants will still enjoy regular camp activities such as zip-lining, archery, swimming and drumming, plus they will participate in the Roberta Bondar Nature Photography Challenge!

Our goal in this program is to build both confidence and character through group activities and workshops that are hands on and most importantly engage all. In their last week participants will utilize all of the skills that they have developed and put on an hour long “Carnival” for our youngest age group.
