Camp Ignite Mentorship Program


Camp Ignite is excited to announce we will be going ahead with a one day Mentorship program Aug 09, 2020. Given the limitations of the current COVID-19 pandemic the previous format of our program was unable to go ahead. The Justice Institute has enabled us to utilize their facility for the day to put on a condensed version for the grade 12 students who would otherwise miss out on the opportunity of attending Ignite. We will be following all guidelines by the provincial health director, have identified appropriate activities and limited our youth participant number to accommodate social distance proximities.

The camp is open to Grade 11 & 12 girls. Priority this year will be given to those in Grade 12 but any other applicants in grade 11 who are not successful will be held for next year. Any youth interested in applying can send applications to and we will contact them with further details on this and other future opportunities.

We thank you all in advance for your continued support of Camp Ignite. Any new contact details for the school (name, email, phone, and address) can be sent to:
