In this five-day program preparing students academically and socially for Grade 9, students spend their mornings reviewing the math and science skills and knowledge important for success in Grade 9 in Ontario schools, and choose from a wide array of traditional camp activities in the afternoon that allow them to experience sports that may be part of their high school experience.
Character Development: This program helps build the following traits
Curiosity: In both the academic and the athletic aspects of this program, students are prompted to identify their strengths and passions and find ways of using both to advance their understanding, whether of a math problem or a sailing technique. Teaching techniques encourage personalized learning and growth.
Physicality: Academic success is fostered by an active body, so this program places strong emphasis on discovering pleasurable physical activities that can be a part of the student’s high school experience--whether those activities are varsity team sports or an individual fitness routine.
