Ages 16 to 17

This three-week program offers similar programming and intentional skill development to the regular Leadership Development 2 program, plus a one-week exchange to Ontario! Camp Elphinstone has collaborated with YMCA Camp Pine Crest in Muskoka, Ontario to provide this unique and exciting opportunity.

These 10 campers will spend a week at Camp Elphinstone, travel to Camp Pine Crest for a week and then return to Elphinstone for a final week with the 10 campers from Camp Pine Crest. Campers are accompanied by YMCA staff at all times while travelling While at Camp Pine Crest, campers embark on a three to four-day backcountry canoe trip along the French River and learn about the rich heritage in the region.

While at Camp Elphinstone, campers take part in a three to four-day backpacking trip through the Coast Mountains along the Sunshine Coast Trail. This program gives campers the opportunity to develop resiliency, communication skills and leadership skills while also providing a unique opportunity to experience a new part of Canada and a different YMCA camp.
