“Our students come back each year and tell us things like ‘it was the best week of my entire life’. These comments make the time we took as a staff on the selection of students count as time well spent.”
~ Karen Dale, Principal, Eric Graves Junior High
Catapult does not compare with other teen leadership camps. Its focus is on teens who would otherwise never have the opportunity to take part in this type of experiential learning. Catapult campers will be the students who have enormous potential with all the qualities to succeed – but who haven’t had many chances to participate in experiences that develop team building skills and confidence.
Students can only attend Catapult if they are nominated by a Teacher or Guidance Counsellor. Please consider who among your students would be an excellent candidate for this potentially life-changing experience. A full information package, including nomination forms, are sent to every junior high and middle school in Nova Scotia in February.
The deadline for nominations is FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 2017.
Presented by Morien Resources Corporation , Catapult is a non-profit camp fully funded by corporate and community sponsorships. Registration, accommodation, meals and even transportation will be provided at no cost to the school or student.
Catapult ’s experienced and capable staff is led by Program Director “Mr. Phil” Gugliuzza, a dynamic leadership expert from New Orleans who has inspired thousands of students in over 13 countries. Our Student & Staff Director, Julian Maynard, hails from Nassau, Bahamas, and now lives, works and studies in Boston, Mass. and has spent many summers working camps in Europe. Solidifying the team as Administrative Director is Catapult Founder, Jane Roy of Bedford, NS. They are supported by a team of counselors (all university students), a nurse and top notch speakers – ensuring a FUN and engaging camp experience.
But don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students had to say about their experience.
