A second round of public consultations will take place next month on the proposed location for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation youth leadership camp. The camp will be situated near Sylvia Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park.
The camp will provide youth with the opportunity to learn life-long leadership skills in a unique natural environment. The camp would host youth ages 13 to 17.
Plans for the facility include sleeping capacity for up to 260 young people, a dining hall and several temporary seasonal yurt enclosures.
Public consultations will be held at two locations:
Whiteshell — Tuesday, Feb. 16, Pinewood Lodge, Dorothy Lake, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Winnipeg — Wednesday, Feb. 17, Canad Inns Polo Park, 1405 St. Matthews Ave., 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation operates six camps in Canada and the U.S. and is a non-profit, charitable organization.
