2017 CIT, LIT and Youth Programs

Unicamp provides a safe space and community-based place to Unitarian Universalist youth for a diverse range of programs. From our skill-based Out Trip to our community-oriented CIT programs – youth have a blast here!

Many of our lead staff came up through the ranks of youth programs and were Jouthers for a time. Most importantly, we acknowledge that UU youth are on a journey of discovery; Unicamp supports youth by giving them time to chill out, make new friends, and lend a hand around main camp. We support youth from all paths of identity to grow into their sense of self and be confident individuals at camp and at home. 

Shout out to our Unicamp Youth!

COUNSELORS-IN-TRAINING PROGRAM
(Ages 15 / entering Grade 10)

Would you like to know what it takes to be an official Unicamp staff?  CITs pick up from the skills learned in the LIT program to help them figure out the ropes of being a counselor and the ins-and-outs of working with the operations crew.

This program features a 2-night camp-out on the Bruce Trail, one day of shadowing a staff member, and plenty of time to foster the CIT family.  Participants are encouraged to think about the role of mentorship in our lives and at camp.

Fee: $1,170 for the 3-week program.

JUNIOR YOUTH (JOUTH) WEEK
Community Kaleidoscope

A kaleidoscope creates designs that consists of glass chips falling apart and then, once shaken, coming back together again, only to make new beautiful designs.

Participants will have time to reflect and focus on themselves, their strengths, and what they can do to help better themselves, their community, and the world at large. Put your mind to the test when you find out if you have what it takes in an escape room. Build relationships, create together with the community, and enjoy this week with your peers.

Fee: $395. See page 6 for discounts.

(Please note that Jouth ends on FRIDAY August 4th.)

YOUTH WILDERNESS ADVENTURE

Join our leaders for an adventure that challenges your limits, supports selfdiscovery, exploration, understanding of our connection with nature, and creates long-lasting bonds! We begin the program at Unicamp in the Group Campsite, dedicated to team building, leadership development, as well as learning the wilderness skills necessary to thrive in the outdoors. Skills covered will include canoeing, fire building, knot tying, outdoor cooking, navigation, earth care stewardship skills, and emergency preparedness.

After completing their training time at camp, participants will travel to the wilds of a provincial park where they will spend their time camping and adventuring in the wilderness. They will put their leadership, resilience, teamwork and wilderness skills into practice. Participants will then return to Unicamp for a debriefing and celebration of their accomplishments.

A team of three leaders with lifeguarding, canoe instruction, and wilderness first aid certifications will supervise youth. While  emergency evacuation procedures will be in place in case of medical concern or inclement weather, due to the remote nature of this program, participation is not open to those with life-threatening allergies or medical conditions.

Fee: $725.
