Past SMILE Campers

SMILE Camp stands for Students and Staff Maximizing Inter-Community Leadership Experience.  SMILE Camp is a partnership with ProAction Cops & Kids and the Toronto District School Board, which focuses on celebrating our diversity and building community.

Held at Camp George in Parry Sound, here’s a break down of the SMILE process.

Step 1 (Early November)
Pre-Camp Training – Students gather before camp to build community and identify issues at their school that need addressing

Step 2 (Late November)
3 day leadership training at Camp George in Parry Sound

Step 3 (Last day of camp)
Action planning – Now that we’re trained and we’ve identified what issues need to be addressed, what are some concrete things we can do to make a change in our schools and communities?

Step 4 (December – April)
Putting our action plans into action – bringing our plan to life and making it happen

Step 5 (April)
Celebration/Reunion – coming back together to celebration our successes, report back on our action plans and reconnect with our fellow SMILE leaders
