Here is a list of some of the programs offered through the Couchiching Community Initiative. We are proud to have successfully served over 4000 youth in our community.

This program is offered through partnership with the Orillia Food Bank, Community Gardens and is currently active in three local public schools.
The CCL is a leadership program that runs in the evenings for 2-3 hours once each week for 8 weeks. Targetting teens ages 13-16, it offers the our summer camp focus on leadership development, demonstrating the value of positive role modelling within the community and the benefits of giving back.
