Trips & activities

Be a Leader is an exciting part of Academic Camp Canada and complements our academic nature. Be a Leader gives you the opportunity to develop your leadership skills in a fun and academic environment. The 20-hour course is spread across the 2-week camp and you will cover vital skills required of a good team leader in small leadership pods with your camp counsellors. You will engage in team projects that link to the afternoon trips and activities. You have the opportunity to apply the skills you learn in a safe and stimulating environment before putting them to the test in your group project.
