THE TIMs CAMPS JOURNEYWE'RE HAPPY YOU ARE HERE!
LEVELS OF SUMMER PROGRAM
In the Ignite level you will be introduced to many components of leadership through cabin-based sessions, team building activities and camp-wide activities. You will also engage in leadership workshops that focus on communication skills, building positive relationships and goal setting.
Explore your leadership abilities and develop your wilderness skills on a 2 day wilderness trip with your cabin group. Time at camp is spent participating in cabin-based activities such as low-adventure course and camp-wide programs. A focus on communication and personal responsibility will be introduced in this level and you will visit a local university or college.
Strive for independence and increased responsibility on a 3 day wilderness experience. Put your leadership skills into action by becoming a leader within your cabin group, assuming the role of “Leader-of-the-Day” on your trip. More ownership will be handed to campers over trip tasks and navigation, and the focus of this level will be on social responsibility and critical thinking.
Embark upon a quest for self-discovery on a challenging 4 day wilderness trip. Accountability for trip tasks such as campsite set-up, meal preparation, and daily navigation are passed onto campers and the leader of the Day will have increased responsibilities. Leadership workshops occur on trip and this level uses the trip itself to bring out themes of well-being and managing adversity.
Reflect on your journey on either a day trip, or a 2 night wilderness trip and plan for your future. Emphasis is placed on transferring your learning from camp and tripping to home-life, through structured workshops and debriefs. At camp, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with business professionals.
Please note that trip lengths may vary depending on availability of trip routes, weather and camp discretion.
