Our Young Leaders spend their summers enjoying camp life, participating in their favorite activities alongside campers, while learning about work ethic, helpfulness and responsibility. They collaborate with our counsellors to offer the best experience possible for campers.

And although it may seem that they’re training to become counsellors, they’re really preparing to become great leaders, role models and citizens, at Borealis Adventure Camp, and beyond!

Young Leaders have the benefit of enjoying camp while taking on added responsibility that will help them learn practical skills in a close-knit team-oriented environment that will serve them for the rest of their lives. Young Leaders get to join in on the light-hearted fun that makes camp so awesome, while at the same time getting acquainted with the responsibilities of becoming a counsellor, having the opportunity to work with counsellors and the leadership team, often in areas of interest or expertise.

Not only do they practice their skills, Young Leaders learn how to teach their skills in a fun and effective way. Through teaching, Young Leaders hone a keen skill set while improving communication skills, organization, and leadership. Campers will also have the option to partake in our single-night canoe and camping out-trip.

The skills that Young Leaders learn go far beyond camp and translate into all facets of life. They might appear to be camp-specific, however they’re actually very life-specific. Young Leaders learn leadership skills, build character, gain confidence, master effective communication, and develop accountability.

At Borealis we recognize age 17 as a significant benchmark of maturity in a teen's life. It's when they have to begin to apply independent work ethic and develop the intellectual and emotional tools to excel in what they do as they head off to post-secondary education or make their way into the workplace. This Borealis A.C. program helps Young Leaders realize their greatest potential as leaders and responsible members of the community at camp, and beyond, equipping them with everything they need to succeed!

Our mission is clear ...

"When it comes to our campers, our top priority is that everyone who joins us for the summer has an incredible experience, full of positive, growth filled moments that inspire and serve as a catalyst for the creation of enhanced self worth, lifelong friendships and cherished memories."

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

In doing so they gain further understanding of how to navigate and own their personal experiences, while contributing to the greater good.
  • Courage: Young Leaders @ Camp are provided the opportunity to embark on a positive journey of self-discovery. When doing so they will learn more about what they're capable of, while taking a leadership role in a community that supports who they are and empowers them to grow.
