Introduced in 2012, the Youth Week Retreat is a one-week, co-ed program offered in partnership with Camp Awakening for young adults with physical disabilities 19-24 years of age.
The Youth Week Retreat is focused on supporting and encouraging young adults with physical disabilities to enjoy outdoor recreational activities; live healthy, active lifestyles; and improve social skill development. Each year the Youth Week schedule adapts to the interests of the participants and allows participants to create their own week long adventure!
The Youth Week Retreat currently operates out of the YMCA Geneva Park Conference Centre in Orillia, ON. Accommodation is in a 2-person shared hotel-style room where participants are paired with another participant of the same gender. Support Staff are housed separately, but can be reached by phone at all times.
