WELCOME TO CANADA
As the world’s second largest country and home to over 36 million inhabitants, Canada is abundant with vibrant cultures, landscapes, climates, and people! It has been hailed for its pivotal role in peacekeeping and recognized as a multicultural symbol, which makes it the perfect place for future leaders to learn about social justice issues and to think critically about what it means to be a responsible global citizen. Participants will be immersed in different cultures and languages enabling them to develop their English communication skills, build their multicultural networks, and engage in leadership training that is both meaningful and inspirational! Come explore our beautiful lands, including Toronto, Ottawa, and Gatineau. Bienvenue au Canada...Welcome to Canada!
Serving as the country’s capital, Ottawa is the political core of Canada and home to Canada’s federal government. Overlooking the Ottawa River is Parliament Hill where politicians gather to discuss issues regarding the nation. Campers will have the opportunity to attend some of the city’s most famous attractions including the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the Northern Lights Sound and Light Show, and even meet a Member of Parliament!
