Devin Manning, Glenn Carpenter Centre Alumni / 2018-2019 Assistant Director, YMCA Camp Glenburn
Biking, Hiking, Canoeing and Kayaking – these are just a few of the many outdoor activities campers at the Glenn Carpenter Centre get to experience. This extraordinary site is located on the pristine Ashburn Lake and it’s home to a unique leadership development camp where participants aged 12+ experience workshops and adventures geared toward honing their skills.
By shadowing various camp staff, leadership campers get a taste of all the possibilities camp offers and a glimpse into the opportunities awaiting them down the road. Shadowing experiences include assisting in camp-wide games, mentoring younger campers through multiple activities and helping to plan large camp programs. The Glenn Carpenter Centre Leadership group is challenged to work together and solve problem-based games while tackling important discussions about real-world scenarios -all the while having fun!
During leadership camp, you’ll make long-lasting friendships while being role models for the younger campers. Leadership campers become a close group who end the summer knowing the Carpenter ropes and improving their own skills.
