Leadership 1 spots still available at Camp Chief Hector YMCA

Spend an amazing month outdoors and improve your group leadership, risk management, and outdoor living skills on this 27-day program. Click here for a full description of our Leadership 1 programs.

Two options are available:

Leadership 1 – Hike and Horse – based from our Gray Jay site | 16Y

Share and develop your leadership skills with your group based out of our Gray Jay site in the mountain wilderness of Yaha Tinda (80 kilometers west of Sundre, Alberta). Learning from a four-day backpacking trip, your group then plans and leads a ten-day backpacking trip. Become an experienced horse-person; during a four-day horseback riding experience you will further develop your riding as well as your ability to lead and communicate. You will also assist in the daily operations of Gray Jay – meal preparation and cleaning, stable management, and site maintenance.

Leadership 1 – Canoe and Hike – based from our Mainsite | 16Y

Share and develop your leadership skills with your group based out of the camp’s main-site in the upper Bow Valley. Learning from a four-day backpacking trip, your group then plans and leads a ten-day backpacking trip. Learning and developing canoe skills in the Bow Valley, the group then plans their journey on the Kootenay River. These challenging adventures require your teamwork in goal setting, route planning and menu planning. Most importantly, these adventures include your own leadership contributions to the group and to the camp.

As with all of our YMCA programs, fee assistance is also available.
