Delegates are the focal point of our retreats. Our retreat's programming is carefully designed to maximize the growth of our Delegates as leaders. At the retreat, Delegates will be led through discussion-oriented sessions which are facilitated by our trained Mentor teams.

Whether this is your first step towards personal development, or you want to supplement your existing leadership skills, attending as a Delegate is highly recommended.

All residents of Ontario and students at Ontario post-secondary institutions, who are 18-27 years of age by the time of the retreat, can register to become a delegate.

Register now as there are only a limited number of Delegate packages!

Wave 3 Registration fee is $195*. 

*The Ascend Network is a not-for-profit student organization. The Delegate package covers three days and two nights of accommodations, transportation from York University to and from the retreat's location, food for the duration of the retreat, the canoeing fee, an Ascend 2019 Delegate t-shirt, the Ascend 2019 manual, and more.
