Each day is filled with skill development workshops, outdoor adventure and swimming at the Brock University pool. Our afternoons will be spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful Brock University campus – hiking, building shelters or roasting marshmallows around a campfire.

Kids will:

  • Take part in exciting and hands-on exploration
  • Have fun in various unique recreational activities
  • Feel valued and experience a sense of belonging
  • Learn important life skills
  • Have a welcoming experience on a post-secondary education campus
  • Be mentored by caring Brock University students
  • Laugh and have a great time.
