The Youth Leadership program is for youth aged 14+, and includes two days of training seminars, followed by a two week placement within our award winning Summer Discovery camps.  Our training seminars will run July 5 & 6, and will prepare you for volunteering with children between the ages of 4-11. Topics include leadership, team-building and child development. Your following two week placement will take place between July 10- August 18 with your choice of volunteering within our Junior Discovery Camp (ages 4-6) or Summer Discovery Camp (ages 7-11).
