We are writing to share both the great success of our GECDSB Leadership Camps, and to express our gratitude to all those who assisted in making our campers’ experiences rich, rewarding and memorable again this year.
Our spring follow-up days at the St. Clair College Sportsplex last week were wonderful. This year’s campers once again overwhelmed us with the variety of fundraisers they ran and the funds they raised for Hospice of Windsor and Essex County - Nearly $34 000 was raised this year! Since the inception of the GECDSB Leadership Camps, campers have donated in excess of $400 000 to the Hospice and other worthy local organizations – truly incredible results for motivated grade 7 students!
Thanks go out to all teachers and administrators in our schools who supported campers through this leadership journey. Furthermore, the many teacher leaders and administrators who attended our camps played important roles in the program, and we thank them for their dedication and commitment. Our secondary school Peer Advisors were excellent mentors in the fall for our up and coming leaders. Finally, we would like to thank Dr. Clara Howitt once again for her support of the Leadership Camp Program.
