The five-day Leadership Camps are designed to increase self-confidence, self-esteem and teach leadership skills to participants that will continue to benefit each of them for years to come. At each camp, students will discover and develop their strengths, returning home with new found courage to achieve their goals and be even stronger leaders. Each day they will take part in team-building exercises, sports, theatre, outdoor and cultural activities.

Our support of these Leadership Camps is all about helping these terrific students have some fun today, while building their character and developing their leadership skills for the future.”
Students attending the camps are aged between 10 to 14-years-old and are participants in a Breakfast Club of Canada program. They are selected to attend the camp in recognition of their commitment to their peers, school breakfast program and community.
