June 17-22, 2023
Offered as a 6-day intensive training week, our goal is to prepare participants to be head instructors in each of these skills. These three activities are some of the main ones we offer to campers. Training in all three skills runs simultaneously.
Participants will learn to coordinate and run a rock climbing program in either an indoor or outdoor setting. The goal is to have our instructors proficient in the set up and tear down of top rope climbs, set up and tear down of institutional rappels, same rope and adjacent rope rescues, the ability to make climbing/rappelling programs fun and safe, teach campers about the sport of rock climbing. This is the only one of the three that has a pre-requisite. Participants should have experience top rope climbing and belaying outside (preferably on lead).
Participants will learn to coordinate and run a flat water canoeing program. The goal is to have our instructors proficient in different tandem strokes and manoeuvres, proper land and water based rescues, how to judge and navigate flat water, and the use of safety equipment. Upon successful completion, participants will get a certificate in Intermediate Tandem Lake Skills through Paddle Canada.
Participants will learn to coordinate and run an archery program. The goal is to have our instructors proficient in the knowledge of archery equipment, the usage of this equipment, and the ability to lead a group of archers in a program.
