Adventure in Understanding - is a voyage of individual growth and self-awareness as participants learn and teach, speak and listen, serve and be served. It is a voyage of discovery that will light a spark of awareness that will burn as a strong force in the minds and hearts of these youth as they mature into the leaders of to-morrow. It is a six day, five night, 100 km co-ed canoe-based experience for First Nation & non-native youth from 16-18 years of age.

This program was developed by the Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha in co-operation with Curve Lake First Nation, Camp Kawartha, and the Canadian Canoe Museum to provide an opportunity for First Nation and non-native youth to share experiences as they learn and travel up the Trent Severn Waterway.

District is sponsoring projects that clubs can participate in and learn from. The idea is to give all clubs, big and small, opportunities and experiences with different types of projects. Hopefully this will encourage cooperation between clubs so you can work with your fellow District 7010 Rotarians while getting the experience you need to undertake your own projects.

The Indigenous projects are designed to be template that can be utilized in individual communities. 

It is hoped clubs will take advantage of these opportunities. The District will provide funding to support these programs.  The funds will come from of our Foundation District Designated Funds in 2017-2018.
