Minimum Age: Born in 2007
Rate: $4,150 + tax
Dates: July Sun July 3- 29; August Sun July 31- Aug 26

The Leadership 1 program focuses on challenging participants in all aspects of outdoor adventure.  The month revolves around candidates working toward their certificate levels in swimming  (Bronze Cross/Medallion) sailing (White Sail/Bronze Levels), lakewater canoeing (ORCKA), Standard First Aid and CPR C (taught through the Red Cross). A big draw to the one-month program is a longer hiking/canoeing excursion. The program builds character, self esteem, and provides a memorable month kids will take with them forever. This program may be eligible for the PAD30, Healthy Active Living, Ontario secondary school credit depending on the number of participants registered for this program. This program could lead candidates to be qualified for the LDP2 program in 2023.

The Leadership 2 program promotes the ideals of leadership in life, challenging candidates to have a positive impact within both the camp and community. Throughout the month, candidates work together within the L2 group as well as divided throughout the camp and community. Leadership sessions are prepared and presented by the Leadership department, and senior camp staff. A big draw to the one-month program is a hiking/canoeing excursion. The program also includes a short term live-out cabin placement (if Covid restrictions allow this), obtaining their NLS (National Lifeguard Service), a short term interest session placement, and various programming challenges and problem solving skills to identify and overcome. This program may be eligible for the PLF4M, Recreation & Healthy Active Living Leadership, Ontario secondary school credit depending on the number of participants registered for the program.

How to Apply to LDP

Your family will log in following our traditional procedures to apply, see link at the bottom of this webpage, however our Leadership Programs have some extra steps.

When entering the on-line application, parent/guardians will use their email as the account log in. Within this application, you will request the programs and choose additional items such as bus, etc. Then you will head into the forms part of the application. Within that area, there is a basic LDP form for both programs and a medical form that needs to be completed by the parent/guardians.

The final part for both years of leadership is the payment screen. Payment of a deposit must accompany the on-line application.

Once these steps have been taken, a confirmation of your on-line application will be received via parent's email, in that email, there is a link to the Google Form that the applicant themselves should complete.

What the parent/guardian does in the on-line application will be reviewed along with what the applicant submits. If one part is missing then the application is considered incomplete.

Leadership programs are not first-come/first-serve and are openly accepted for everyone until the first round of applications are completed. The first round is those applications received by 11:30 p.m on Saturday January 15, 2022. After this time, all applications are reviewed by the camp management team, and spaces are allotted accordingly. Placement is allotted based on camper interest, history at camp, and outside experience by the individual. Everyone is welcome to apply, as no factors outweigh others and all applications will be reviewed. After the deadline passes, placement will occur on a first come-first served based on suitability for the programs and IF space is available.
