Leadership & Peer Support

Olympia Takes “Leadership” to a New Level!

A summer school credit that develops leadership talents and life management skills in the context of Olympia’s challenging and fun-filled environment.

Leadership is any action that enables any individual (or group of individuals) to move toward the accomplishment of their goals.

Peer support is the conscious directing of one’s life in accordance with one’s values and goals, in order to assist and support others.

This program integrates theoretical and experiential learning of leadership and life management skills. Participants explore their relationships with self and others and build their sense of self-worth and community spirit through effective communication skills, self-coaching, challenge fitness skills, learn to learn skills, awareness training, performance enhancement skills, group dynamics, decision-making strategies, resource management and an appreciation of the environment and personal well-being.

An Ideal Setting

Located in beautiful Muskoka, Olympia Sports Camp’s setting provides an ideal context for participants to receive site-based leadership experience. In this program, participants assume the roles of motivating coach, caring counsellor, effective communicator, contributing community member, team player, wilderness tripper, creative thinker and reflective learner.

Selection process

Secondary students will be carefully selected for this leadership program after successfully completing the application process. (click here)

Educational credit

This leadership program meets the requirements of the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training Curriculum Guideline: GPP30 Leadership & Peer Support, 2001. Upon completion of this 110 hours instructional program and subject to the approval of the summer school principal, successful candidates will receive a full credit granted through the Toronto Catholic District School Board, valid towards the Ontario School Diploma. Participants who are not full-time students of a T.C.D.S.B. Secondary School will have their credit transferred to their own school and school board.

NEW COMPONENT FOR 2020: CIT PROGRAM

This year we are adding a formal CIT (Counsellor in training) component to augment the 3-week leadership program.

Candidates who are 16 years of age or who will be turning 16 in the same calendar year and have successfully completed the 3-week leadership program, will be eligible for selection to a unique 2-week CIT training program at no extra cost.   Since CIT’s have a direct impact on the experience of our campers, we must be much more particular about being sure candidates are qualified for this advanced type of training.
