Leap is a two week course for youth ages 15 & 16 where participants live, learn, work, and play together, forming a close-knit group within the larger community of Sorrento Centre. LEAP fosters personal, spiritual, and professional growth in leadership skills and work experience.
Participants will be involved in a variety of fresh, exciting spiritual practices and engaging workshops and activities. LEAP includes a mid-program camping retreat off site, as well as daily free time opportunities to relax and to enjoy beautiful Sorrento Centre.
While intensive and challenging, LEAP is also a lot of fun, and a potentially life-changing experience. Ideal for those looking to volunteer or work at Sorrento Centre or a similar organization in the future, LEAP provides an opportunity much more rewarding than the average summer camp.
