Winter Youth Venture Camps

Our Winter Youth Venture program focuses on leadership - including hard and soft skill development. The program offers a number of real life experiences that will help youth find their passion and make informed decisions in their lives. The program gives youth the opportunity to see a little of each camp in action. Throughout the course of the week youth will experience sample highlight activities such as ice skating, snow cave construction and back country hiking. The course will finish with a zip line tour.
