Leadership Retreat

We are currently restructuring some of our program offerings, and as a result, will not be offering DEEP Leadership Camp for the Summer 2019 season. Please join our mailing list to keep up-to-date on upcoming Outreach programs and events.

The Engineering Outreach Office is excited  to announce the Girls’ Leadership 3-day Retreat program based off of our popular DEEP Leadership Camp. The Leadership 3-day Retreat invites girls in grades 7-9 to explore personal leadership while engaging in an integrated STEM curriculum in a beautiful outdoor environment at Gull Lake.

Campers will explore topics in science and engineering, and begin to think about how they can use these topics to affect change on a personal, local, and global scale. They will also have plenty of time to enjoy outdoor activities with new friends, including canoeing, swimming, and making campfire s’mores!

Information about the Girls’ Leadership 3-day Retreat 2019 will be announced shortly.

Topic Areas Include:

  • What is a leader?  Considering definitions and styles of leadership.
  • What is engineering? What do engineers do?  Design thinking and the engineering design process.
  • Exploring the role of science/STEM, society, and the natural environment.
  • Teamwork skills; effective communication, collaboration, persistence, and the importance of reflection to skill development.

Location: University of Toronto Gull Lake Survey Camp, Haliburton

The cost of the Girls’ Leadership 3-Day Retreat 2019 will be announced shortly. The cost includes transportation from the University of Toronto campus to Gull Lake, and transportation back to campus. All meals and accommodations are included.
