Two weeks of summer fun in the sun with a whole lot of learning and growth is what LEAP is all about. During this time, we were able to catch up up with Liam Nystrom, almost 15, for short chat about what he thinks about Sorrento Centre.

Every summer since he was just four, Liam, from Calgary has camped here with his large extended family spending his summer vacation doing the typical kid things... playing in the sparkling waters of the Shuswap Lake, riding his bike and playing tag, climbing on the monkey bars and spending time around the campfire.

Now, as a teenager, he has just finished two weeks living, eating, camping, learning, praying and growing alongside other youth forming a close-knit group within the larger community of Sorrento Centre.

Liam was an integral part of the 2022 LEAP gang, his kind heart and enthusiastic leadership shone! Listen to a little bit of what he thinks about Sorrento Centre, what he loves most, and some future plans! We can't wait!

In case you don't know, the Leadership, Experience and Adventure Program (LEAP), is a two-week course for youth designed to foster personal, spiritual, and professional growth in leadership skills and work experience. Find out more
