DEEP Leadership Camp
This exciting one-week outdoor leadership camp takes place at Gull Lake in beautiful northern Ontario during the 2nd week of DEEP (July 11 to 15, 2011). The DEEP Leadership Camp will be hosted at Gull Lake, the University of Toronto’s Civil Engineering Survey Camp. This survey camp has been an important U of T tradition to undergraduate engineering students for over 90 years.
The Gull Lake Survey Camp is located at the northern end of Gull Lake near Minden, Ontario. DEEP will be exploring Gull Lake for our second summer to engage in learning in a real Canadian wilderness experience!
Engineers are often described as leaders of change and innovation. Being a good leader is an important part of being a good engineer. As a Leader-in-Training (LIT), you will participate in modules to develop your leadership potential and essential skills such as conflict resolution, communications and problem solving. These skills and tools will also help to enhance your self-confidence — another important attribute of good leaders.
The Leadership Camp includes a range of training modules designed to prepare you to take on meaningful leadership roles in your school and community. These modules are further complemented by our surroundings at Gull Lake, enabling you to learn wilderness and survival skills hand-in-hand with an intentional leadership focus.
The University of Toronto Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE U of T), in collaboration with the Engineering Student Outreach Office in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, has established a new interactive program for motivated students in grades 7 and 8. Engage seeks to foster an interest in engineering and science, while engaging participants in a range of personal development activities throughout the week-long program.
University of Toronto's Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering offers also offers an engineering program for children in grades 7 and 8 titled Jr. DEEP.
Jr. DEEP is modeled after our Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (DEEP) Summer Academy for high school students. Jr. DEEP offers students at grades 7 and 8 the unique opportunity to learn about some of the most cutting-edge topics in science, technology, and applied science and engineering.
