Camp Focus:

Not only will we be enjoying our beautiful mountain foothills, but we will be working on the development of personal leadership skills. Why leadership? Leadership capacity encourages increased confidence and effectiveness in group situations.

Health and Safety

Your child’s safety is our highest priority. We are fully compliant with all health guidelines as they apply to COVID-19. We are keeping groupings small (maximum 1 to 4 ratio) to support physical distancing. In accordance with health guidelines, we will ask parents to attest to your child’s health each day.

Leaders:

The day camp program is facilitated by qualified leaders from our psychology and outdoor team under the supervision of the psychologist. The outdoor field team has many years of experience in the areas of psychology, counselling, behavior therapy, outdoor programming, and education.
