Leaders in Training: Designing Your Future

Throughout the mornings while on campus, students will learn about factors that affect success in the work environment, explore their personal strengths, and refine their employability skills. Students will earn approximately 24 community service hours over the 3-week period on campus helping out students in other summer academy programs. They will also be able to choose to work toward their Bronze Medallion or ORCKA Flatwater Canoeing levels 1 through 3.

Upon successful completion of the Leaders in Training program, students (ages 16+) may apply to be a Day Camp Junior Counsellor with LCS Summer Academy.
