The CAIS Middle School Leadership Camp is committed to harnessing our student's budding leadership potential. Students are given the opportunity to support and challenge each other as leaders so they can make their own unique mark on society.
It is with great excitement that we invite you and your students to attend the 5
annual CAIS Middle School Leadership Camp. It will run from
Friday, September 21 - Monday, September 24, 2018
at Onondaga Camp in Minden, ON.
This year's camp offers a unique opportunity for grade 7 & 8 students across Canada to learn how to motivate, inspire, and lead others in helping to solve four pressing issues in Canadian society. Supported by their teachers, the staff at Onondaga Camp, and other education professionals, students will discover how their leadership can provide solutions that have a global impact.
The program will take advantage of an exceptional outdoor learning environment in which we bring like-minded peers from B.C. to Newfoundland to grow, and have fun learning together. The weekend will be filled with engaging workshops, keynote speakers, camp activities, and opportunities for genuine student collaboration.
We know that students in grades 7 & 8 are just starting out on their leadership journey. Thus, our goal is to provide them with the tools, experiences, and connections to help them think about the type of leader they aspire to be and how they can begin to put that into action at their own school.
Last year, over 140 students representing more than 20 CAIS Schools attended. Last year we put schools on a waiting list, so we urge you to register early, understanding that a maximum of 10 students per school is permitted.
The cost to attend is
includes transportation between Toronto and the camp both ways, meals, accommodations, and programming fees. This is an increase over last year's fee that is a direct result of the significant increase to the Ontario minimum wage, effective January 1. The fee also covers the cost to send one faculty advisor; however, if a second faculty advisor attends, your school will be charged a nominal fee of $200.00 to cover additional costs.
There will be two steps to registration.
