DEEP Leadership Camp Information

DEEP Leadership Camp offers high school students the opportunity to explore personal leadership development through a unique integrated curriculum that includes practical applications drawn from STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields in an outdoor setting. Participants will explore topics in science and engineering through fun, interdisciplinary activities.

Major topic areas include:

  • What is engineering? What do engineers do?
  • Design thinking and the engineering design process; exploring the role of science, technology and society
  • Local issues (urban and rural issues, social considerations, health care), the outdoors, and connections to engineering
  • Professional skills development: presentation, communication and decision-making
  • Building teams, mentoring, developing persistence and resilience
  • Being a leader in your school and in your community

Participants will also have time to relax and enjoy the sun, swim in the lake, canoe, play sports and hike the surrounding wilderness.

The seven-day program runs from Sunday to Saturday.

DEEP Leadership runs for 4, one-week sessions during the month of July. Students can participate in one week of DEEP Leadership Camp only.

The tuition fee for DEEP Leadership Camp includes all course costs, including transportation by bus from the St. George campus of the University of Toronto to the Gull Lake civil survey camp, and bus transportation to return to campus at the end of the program, as well as all meals, activity materials and equipment, and accommodations in camp bunkhouse cabins.
