Get to Know Our Program!
Camp Discovery’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) is designed to teach youth leadership lessons which are applicable to all areas of their life. By building self-esteem and confidence, learning about community service, and understanding group dynamics and team building, our youth will leave these programs ready to lead themselves and others through their transition from teenagers to young adults.
Challenger Leadership Development Program 2 Extended (LDP 2X)
New in 2016, this program gives LDP 2 participants the exciting opportunity to test and expand their skills in a joint Camp Banting-Camp Discovery LDP.
Participants will take part in the Challenger LDP2 at Camp Banting and then further hone their counselling and leadership skills during a five-day placement with a Camp Discovery cabin. During this time LDP participants will be supervised and supported by a dedicated staff member, who will ensure they are supported to meet their leadership goals!
Transportation will be NOT be provided between Camp Banting (Ottawa) and Camp Discovery (London).
Our LDP participants at Camp Banting will be staying at Over the Hill, sleeping in large tents on tent platforms. Over the Hill is equipped with Kybos, running water and a fire pit.
While at Camp Discovery, LDP 2X participants will be placed in cabin groups with Camp Discovery campers and staff.
