United Youth of Canada is an organization founded in 2008 by Andrea Tull and her husband. The main purpose of the camp is to “Reach, Teach and Empower our Youth.” The camp runs various activities for the kids from sports, to arts, to even community service.
The camp is located at St. Ignatius Catholic School, near McCowan Rd. and Finch Ave E. This camp runs from July 9th to August 4th. Throughout the summer, the kids are placed in different groups to work together as a team and to make new friendships. Each team earns points for competitions and games. The team with the most points at the end of the week, receives a prize.
Each day, the camp emphasizes on a specific topic, like nature or even drama/dance. Through these daily activities, the kids further expand their imagination. The children are encouraged to work independently and in teams. They focus on positive peer relationships, increasing self-confidence and self-esteem levels, and allow the children to work on their leadership/mentoring abilities.
