Rankin Rock Hockey Camp will develop youth leadership capacity in communities by giving youth a hands-on experiential learning opportunity as coaches and leaders of a hockey camp. The project received $80,000 from the Arctic Inspiration Prize to foster the development of young role models and mentorship and promote healthy, active lifestyles and decision-making. Not only will camp participants build their foundational skills for the upcoming hockey season, but they will – along with youth leaders, coaches and instructors – develop skills, knowledge and attitudes that support skill development, goal-setting, personal wellness, and self-confidence.
