Second Stage in the Youth Leadership Program

This course is similar to the (now replaced) Leader in Training program and with more flexibility for participants to meet their personal goals with newly developed course content.

Leadership Two is a four-week course with opportunities to extend to six or eight weeks to further develop their leadership skill-set.

Individuals will spend each day fully immersed in the course including theory lessons, opportunities to lead activities, and live in a camper cabin as a co-leader.

Campers will be invited to interview for Leadership Two upon completion of Leadership One

Work Closely as a Team

The group completing the course will form a tight knit connection by learning and growing together. To establish strong bonds in the group, our course includes a 4-5 day canoe trip around beautiful Lake Temagami.
