Making An Outstanding Difference In The Community

Leacock Retirement Lodge Joins Forces With Georgian College And Camp Couchiching To develop Community Impact Project.

Leacock Retirement Lodge - Orillia, ON

The Leacock Retirement Lodge Team was thrilled to have three Child and Youth Care students from Georgian College recently present them with the idea of a Community Impact Project. Designed as a special program to allow students to create a positive social impact within their community, the team was keen to bring local youth and seniors together in an impactful manner. Working collaboratively with our Lodge and Camp Couchiching the students brought the idea of a "Pop-Up Camp" came to life! By running therapeutic camp-type activities that are fun, interactive and create a safe space, connection and validation for both the seniors and youth, it was evident that everyone would benefit. The end goal of this project was to build meaningful relationships and mitigate accessibility challenges by bridging the gap between generations through the power of the camp experience. Leacock Retirement Lodge is a proud partner to the Community Impact Project, and were so thrilled to host the Pop-Up Camp in their Lodge this March. Our Residents had a fabulous time, and we look forward to more community projects like this. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible.
