CRLT students had full camp experience this year
For the first time since 2019, students in the Community, Recreation and Leadership Training (CRLT) Program were able to have the full experience of the annual CRLT Fall Outdoor Ed Program, including sleeping over on site, campfires and archery.
This is a key five-day experience of the program and it is different for each cohort of students. This year it took place Sept. 1-5 at the Centre de Plein Air Notre-Dame-de-Fatima. The organizers are third-year students, workshop leaders and coordinators. The first-year students are the participants. Second-year students take the Environmental Leadership Experience course during the camp, which equips them to lead a Nature-based workshop.
This year, a total of 98 students participated. It is said to be the largest camp run by students for CEGEP students.
