Footsteps to Success is one of the three camps founded by Andre Fullerton. It was created to allow youth to become involved, and to help urban communities grow. This camp provides youth with the opportunity to grow and develop teamwork, creativity, cultural awareness, and leadership skills. Footsteps to Success focuses on building the community by investing in youth, to give them a different outlook, and expose them to new opportunities. Campers are led by the Focus on Youth students who bring positive energy, enthusiasm, and develop into amazing role models.
Footsteps to Success at Father Henry Carr is for youth ages 6-14, and takes place from July 2nd- August 9th. This summer camp comes with free admission, a daily morning breakfast, weekly trips, swimming and workshops such as the STEAM program (which gives an exciting outlook on a variety of subjects). Each day the campers are led by the staff to participate in morning exercises to get them ready and energized for the day. The kids rotate through various activities which include the Arts, Leadership and Sports. The camp also provides a variety of weekly trips to the Zoo, Canada’s Wonderland, The Science Center and more!
The Arts program is an opportunity for the kids and counsellors to develop relationships as it allows them to socialize and be creative. Activities in the arts include activities such as singing, dancing, music and drama.
The Leadership program allows the kids to develop strengths, improve on weaknesses, and become effective future leaders.
The Sports program is another opportunity for the kids to have fun with each other and the staff; they play different sports such as volleyball, soccer, basketball, and many more. It motivates the kids to try their best and to stay active. Last but not least, the campers always come together to play a variety of group games!
