What do the organizers say??
“The goal of leadership camp is for students to become comfortable with themselves and others and to enhance their leadership skills. At camp, we do lots of activities to teach people how to lead effectively in all sorts of situations. We will have fun bonding together and you will get the chance to create relationships with students from other grades. You will learn important skills from your fellow leadership campers and have an unforgettable time.”
Why attend camp?
As a delegate, you will have the chance to work with other students in your school to develop your leadership skills. You will participate in different group activities and challenges led by two skill builders who attend John McCrae. In addition to the two days at Camp Bonnenfant, there will be one after school session including ice breaker activities.
