LEAP: Leadership, Experience, and Adventure Program
with Cameron Gutjahr and Daryl Drozda
LEAP, the Leadership Experience, and Adventure Program, is a two-week course for youth, ages 15 and 16.LEAP participants live, learn, work, and play together, forming a close-knit group within the larger community of Sorrento Centre.
LEAP fosters personal, spiritual and professional growth in leadership skills and work experience. Participants will be involved in a variety of fresh and exciting spiritual practices, and engaging workshops and activities.
LEAP includes a mid-program camping retreat off-site, as well as daily free time opportunities to relax and enjoy beautiful Sorrento Centre. While intensive and challenging, LEAP is also a lot of fun, and a potentially life-changing experience.
Ideal for those looking to volunteer or work at Sorrento Centre or a similar organization in the future, LEAP provides an opportunity much more rewarding than the average summer camp.
