Discover your leadership potential and be inspired to change the lives of those around you. The PHE Saskatchewan Student Leadership “Experience” will challenge your physical, social, emotional and intellectual well-being. You will have opportunities to engage in physical activities combined with presentations, workshops and other initiatives that encourage you to explore your preconceptions of health, inclusion, education, and leadership.
You will work closely with mentors and students from across Saskatchewan and Canada with diverse backgrounds and experiences. You will learn from and network with some of the most influential mentors in the field of physical education, health education, sport, and health promotion. You will return from the “experience” with increased knowledge and skills to foster healthy active living for children and youth in the school community. But more than that, expect to come away with a greater understanding of what it means to be a leader, and how you can challenge yourself and others to meet and exceed your goals and expectations. The location will be the Dallas Valley Ranch Camp in Lumsden, Saskatchewan. Visit their website at: http://www.dallasvalley.com/
The Student Leadership “Experience” is targeted to post-secondary students who view themselves as future leaders in related fields of education, kinesiology, nursing, and health promotion.
While at the Student Leadership “Experience” you will be participating in indoor and outdoor activities, both on land and on water. You will be assigned to a mentor group made up of your peers who will be representing areas all across Saskatchewan and Canada. Working with each group will be two mentors – individuals who are working in, and highly regarded within the fields of physical education, health, sport and other related sectors. You will find yourself pushing your physical limitations and questioning your assumptions in a safe, supportive, and empowering atmosphere.
It is important to note that late September can mean unpredictable temperatures and weather in Saskatchewan. Please keep this in mind when packing and try to prepare for multiple weather situations. Most activities will be taking place outside - bring warm clothing and rain gear. Accommodations are heated, but the evenings can still be quite cool. Bedding and toiletries are not provided. In addition, the camp we are staying at is quite large with uneven terrain, so make sure you have appropriate footwear to get around and comfortably participate in our active sessions. More information regarding the specifics of what to pack will be shared with participants at a later date.
Accommodations (cabins) will be shared with other participants. All accommodations have showers and washroom facilities available for use. You will receive three full meals (buffet style) and snacks daily as part of your registration fee.
It is the responsibility of each participant to cover all costs associated with travel to and from the student leadership “experience”. Getting to Dallas Valley is quite easy. If you're coming from Regina, take Highway 11 north out of the city. There is a sign directing you towards the camp at EXIT B, and then there are signs directing you the rest of the way. If you're coming from the north, drive past Lumsden on Highway 11, and take EXIT C and the signage will take you straight to us.
