The youths, ages 11-15, were invited to participate in a unique leadership camp as part of a five-year partnership between the two foundations.
The students, who were selected by School District 18 principals and teachers, left for the five-day camp at the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation Camp in Tatamagouche, N.S., yesterday morning.
While there, they will learn leadership skills, teamwork and independence through activities such as archery and kayaking.
They will also have an opportunity to learn the traditional teachings of their aboriginal culture.
