A Line in the Ice is a one day program targeting young male hockey players between the ages of 14-21. The program features a day spent traversing the low and high ropes challenge course, leadership building activities and a workshop focusing on consent within relationships. By reaching young men through sport at a pivotal point in their lives, it is our aim to instill in them the character traits society increasingly demands.
Here is the game plan: We are inviting area teams to send team leaders to the challenge course facility in Walton at no cost. There, they will have the chance to meet and listen to established community leaders and experts in the field of sexual consent, former and elite players who will talk about their experiences in the game and what these young men need to set and maintain a high standard of honour, integrity and sportsmanship on and off the ice.
For more information, or to register for the limited space , taking place on Saturday, August 8th, program please contact Melody (firstname.lastname@example.org or text or call 519-440-9424)
Grand Sparks is a one-week activity day camp that will challenge grandparents to interactive outdoor play and recreation with their grandchildren. The ultimate goal is to motivate seniors to become more active and find a recreational activity that becomes a shared, routine, interactive pastime with youth. Small local businesses and individuals will lead sessions in adventure hiking, canoeing, biking, yoga, strength training and much more. This program will also include nutrition workshops daily.
You don’t have to officially be a senior, or a grandparent, to participate. You only need to be an older adult bringing a youth partner, and lots of sunscreen.
This is a pilot project in conjunction with Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health. By signing up for Grand Sparks, you will also be participating in rural health research. The primary question: What motivates people to get active and stay active? Many people will start an exercise program with good intentions, but often lose interest or motivation to sustain that activity over time. We are curious whether a program like Grand Sparks, that focuses on building relationships through a shared activity, is a more sustainable exercise program.
Want to foster more interpersonal growth among your professional team members? Need a chance for your employees or co-workers to get to know each other in a more relaxed setting than the office? Team building retreats are a great way to help your staff establish stronger relationships and work together on something challenging and fun that won’t be reflected on their performance assessment.
We know how valuable those opportunities to bond with co-workers outside of the office are, so we’ve gathered some team-building activities from around Ontario that we think you should try with your staff. There’s something for everyone, from cooking to painting, from horseback riding to kayaking, from spa retreats to unplugged lodges.
