Youth Adventures
Rotary offers outstanding youth development opportunities through various Youth Adventures during the year.  Adventures, organized by area Rotary Clubs in the region, provide students with unique deep-dive opportunities to explore various themes and subjects, often for multiple days. 
Adventures are currently offered in:
  • the Adventure in (Indigenous) Understanding, organized by the Rotary Club of Peterborough -Kawartha, is a 6-day / 5-night cultural canoe trip for 20 students (in 3 war canoes) along the Trent River system from Peterborough to the Curve Lake First Nation.  The AIU normally runs during the last week of August. 
  • Adventures in the Environment, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise, involves four days of field biology and environmental science with specialists from the St. Lawrence Institute of Environmental Sciences. Participants participate in hands-on environmental science activities such as fish identification and measurement, lab work, plant and invertebrate study, an adventure with bats and daily conversation with the technicians and scientists who work at the Institute.  The AIE normally runs during mid-September.
  • Adventure in High Technology, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Nepean-Kanata provides high school students an opportunity to explore the potential of a career in the exciting world of High Technology. The program assists participants in making more informed career decisions.  The AiHT normally runs over an October weekend after Thanksgiving.
  • Adventures in Citizenship, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ottawa, provides a unique opportunity for a select group of young Canadians to come together to gain a better understanding of their country. The program includes meetings with political leaders and senior officials. Participants learn to appreciate the diversity of Canada and the privileges and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship.  The AiC normally runs at the end of May. 
The Rotary Club of Kingston-Frontenac is proud to have been able to sponsor a number of local high school students for these Adventures.
