This program is designed to provide LITs with the skills and experience that they need to succeed and grow as leaders.

Multi-destination Information

We acknowledge that we are learning and working on the beautiful Traditional Territory of the Ta'an Kwäch'än Council and the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and are grateful for this opportunity. 

Variety is the spice of life and this holds true for summer camp too! Our weekly rotation is built to match camper skills with appropriate terrain/bodies of water. Parents are responsible for dropping off LITs at the destination each day.
