FREE! Youth Day at Duntroon – Saturday, July 9

July 9

An enchanted musical pathway from sunrise to sunset at Duntroon Highlands Golf Club.

This year we are hosting an entire day of FREE events for youth and families in celebration of Nunavut Day!

Participants can stroll through the breathtaking landscape and explore musical ‘stations’ equipped with ready-to-play instruments. These musical instruments are made of recycled materials such as wood, metal, rock, steel, plastic and are designed to be played ‘unplugged’ by both children and adults at their leisure.

Come and enjoy the serenity of nature coupled with exquisite cuisine and uncover your inner musician, inspired by the sounds of the wind, water and birds!

Here is a timeline for all of the youth & family events scheduled to take place at the Duntroon Highlands House.

Philosophy

L.E.A.D. (Listen, Empathize, Act, Drive) is a concept developed by Marilyn Field, the education visionary and founder of YouthLEADArts. The activities are designed to focus on one’s inner-awareness, while using the elevating power of music as a critical component of the environment.
