Aug 18 – 20: Summer Camp for Matches – SUPERHEROES

Heroes Assemble! This year’s Youth Assisting Youth camp theme for Matches is SUPERHEROES.  All of the world’s mightiest Superheroes on the planet must unite and work together with the ‘YAY Events Team’ and their Squad ‘YAY Staff & Counsellors’ to save the universe.  Campers will gather at our Headquarters located at Ziontario Campground and are made to feel welcome, and comfortable in a safe environment to help all our superheroes pass the challenges and have the best weekend ever!


From Friday August 18th – Sunday August 20th, matches will gather and compete in friendly competition with each other.  This year all campers will be assembled into 4 groups.  Upon arrival, Mentors and Mentees will be aided through various challenges, relationship building adventures and games.  They will participate in activities such as swimming, canoeing, arts & crafts, sports activities and much more!  Throughout the weekend all groups will participate in tasks that will test their strengths and skills while building confidence by trying new things and making friends.  The superhero teams will have the opportunity to demonstrate the greatest amount of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, and positivity and ultimately excel in certain activities and have a fun and engaging camp experience.


All Matches will be sleeping in a dormitory or have the option to sleep in a tent at the campsite.  For three days we will be on an adventure with transportation, meals and snacks, activities and accommodations all included.


It is an amazing three days packed with adventure, learning and FUN!
