Empowered U Camp

For leadership and personal development. There is no greater journey than the one that you take to discover who you are.

The Empowered U Camp focuses on what is already within. Learn how to tap into those skills and abilities at another level. Over 2 days develop confidence, resiliency, and focus. Don't just survive ... THIRVE in today's world.

This Camp experience is valued at $750 for 2 full days of training. Empowering Minds believes cost shouldn't be a barrier to empowerment. With the support of funders like The Brawn Family Foundation, Rogers Communications and The Werklund Family Foundation, we have opportunities for subsidies and scholarships.

Please contact Empowering Minds to discuss these opportunities.

Let’s stay in touch! Stay up to date with the latest news and events from Empowering Minds.


You have to be happy with yourself before you can think of making others happy.

There are many good qualities in each of us, but sometimes in life we forget about them. These need to be rediscovered. These are all a beautiful part of us.
