what to expect
Catapult Camp is a unique and unforgettable experience that could change your life. But don’t take our word for it – here’s what last years’students had to say:
Expect to have one of the best weeks of your life! Create lasting friendships, have fun, discover how much potential you truly have, and learn to believe in yourself.
Expect to be surrounded by respect, warmth and positivity. Our staff are exceptional personalities and are well trained to deliver a world class program to you.
Expect to be a little nervous on arrival day! This is normal and you’ll soon realize you’re not the only one feeling apprehensive about heading away to spend a week with strangers. But – because everyone is feeling that way, new friendships form very quickly. Within 24 hours you’ll feel like you’ve known your new friends for a week, and by the end of the week you’ll feel like you’ve known them for years.
Expect a unique experience that allows you the freedom to be “anyone you want to be” without the influence of existing friends. At home, you may be on the outside looking in or on the inside wanting out, but at camp everyone arrives on an equal playing ground. It’s a rare opportunity to find out who you really are!
Expect to be kept busy! Our days and evenings are full with a wide variety of fun, relevant activities and inspiring presentations. You’ll have plenty of free time to chill with your new friends too and explore Acadia’s beautiful campus.
Don’t expect to incur any costs! That is all being taken care of through the generosity of our corporate and community partners. We’ll even send a charter bus to pick you up!
Although no day at Catapult Camp is “typical”, here is a sample schedule of what one of your days could look like:
“This may sound cliche but my favorite part of Catapult was the whole thing.
I will never forget “breaking the ice” it was when none of us really knew each other and we were basically forced to get to know each other. We learned that we all had things in common, and it was when personalities really came out.
I think we all realized that this week was going to be a good one.”
