This action packed 1-week session involves a series of adventure-based activities led by our experienced staff and qualified instructors at each facility. This intensive program never stops challenging campers with adventure activities from start to finish. Our staff promote an enriching and leadership-focused environment for the campers as they work together to develop a positive and confident attitude toward themselves and others in a non-competitive, nurturing environment.
Sample Schedule (* subject to revision):
Saturday – Arrival (10:00-10:30am), On-camp adventure – Icebreakers, Kayaking, Canoeing and High Ropes
Sunday – Outdoor Rock Climbing at the Eagle’s Nest in Bancroft
Monday – Day 1 – Mountain Biking at Sir Sams
Tuesday – Day 2 – Mountain Biking at Sir Sams
Wednesday – Day 1 – White Water Kayaking at Palmer Rapids with Paddler’s Co-op
Thursday – Day 2 – White Water Kayaking at Palmer Rapids with Paddler’s Co-op
Thurs. Evening – Camp Banquet and Candlelight Ceremony
Friday – Closure Activities and Departure
Each trip is led by qualified staff at each facility. Throughout the week, campers will build on their individual hard skills, soft skills and a foundation of teamwork with other campers and with the support of their staff members.
* This is our intended schedule which has been maintained for many years, but location of events may be altered.
Recommendation: To help gain valuable team-building skills and tripping experience prior to taking leadership courses, we suggest that campers consider completing either this ‘Challenge and Adventure’ program or the ‘Wilderness Canoe Trip’ (for ages 14-16) before applying for the ‘Counsellor Skills Development’ and ‘Leader-In-Training’ courses.
