BECOME THE EVERYDAY HERO OF YOUR OWN STORY PROGRAM!
Each day campers are introduced to the Hero’s Journey concept. On this journey they experience fun,
individual and cabin challenges, action-oriented dances/songs, demonstrations and messages that give
campers practical life skills. These skills include identifying and setting goals, overcoming obstacles,
remaining focused, being optimistic and confident while they uplift others. The Hero’s Awakening
motivational session happens each morning from approximately 8:45 – 9:45 AM. Coaches and
counsellors continue this message throughout the week so campers will have the confidence, resilience
and tools necessary to continue their OWN HERO’S JOURNEY. These life skills will serve them long after
they leave camp!
