'Christmas In Muskoka' Annual Event

You may be one of the lucky winners and all for a good cause! The event was a huge success last year and previous years as well. It is a yearly community event to support the grade 7 students and the UCC Leadership Team who attend the Muskoka Wood Leadership Camp in May.
The event is sponsored by the St. Clair Catholic School Board and the proceeds go to support students who attend the Camp. 1700 kids, including Grade 7 students and High School leaders from Ursuline College Chatham have been able to take part in this Premier Outdoor Adventure Camp, thanks to 'Christmas in Muskoka' The Leadership Camp is a tremendous leadership experience for these young people. Each new attendee partners with an Ursuline Collegiate student for 4 days of fun, mentoring and challenging themselves as they learn and grow. Zip Lining and Climbing Rope Ladders are just some of the activities. The Camp is aimed at preparing the Grade 7 students to enter Grade 8 and become the leaders and role models in their schools for the younger students. They learn teamwork and cooperation and the camp has proved to be a great training experience.
