If your son/daughter has just been accepted to Catapult … CONGRATULATIONS! It means a teacher recognized strong leadership potential in him/her. Its an incredible opportunity your child has been given.
Participating in an overnight camp is a wonderful experience with so many lasting benefits, including the building of self-esteem and confidence … along with great fun and lasting friendships. For many of our students, this will be their first time away from home, which can lead to anxiety (for both parent and student). Rest assured, our trained staff and resources will take good care of your child and ensure they have the most rewarding week possible. Our Directors are international youth camp ‘experts’, our counselors are university students, and we have a qualified nurse with us 24/7.
Wolfville and Acadia University are the perfect hosts to run our proven program in a safe and supportive environment. Campers learn to step outside their comfort zone and try new things. When your child returns home, he/she will have a wealth of experiences to share with you along with a new-found confidence and the skills to succeed in high school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at any time at 902-830-5704.
Once selected, our campers are mailed a complete registration package to prepare them for camp. Some information you may want to read before you receive your package include:
