SUNIA takes place at the Goldeye Lake Conference Centre, which is nestled in the heart of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. The Goldeye Centre not only offers excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation, it also provides students with heated cabins, fully-equipped bathrooms, and delicious meals. Goldeye Staff prepare all snacks and meals, and are prepared to accommodate most dietary restrictions.
The academic side of SUNIA is balanced out by all the opportunities for recreation on Goldeye Lake, including canoeing, paddle boating, swimming, or just taking a stroll around the lake. The cost for all outdoor equipment - including lifejackets, canoes, and paddle boats - are covered by SUNIA's participation fee and are available to all students. During recreation time, students can also make use of Goldeye's Games Field, where they can play almost any sport, from soccer to frisbee to capture the flag.
Throughout the week, SUNIA campers also participate in two moderate hikes (do not fear - if we can do them, you can do them too!) The first is the scenic Crescent Falls, a two-tiered waterfall in the Bighorn River Canyon with the best views you'll see all summer. The second is Mount Baldy, the highest peak in the area. From the top of Mount Baldy, students can see everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer (and brag that they have officially climbed a mountain).
In the event of less-than-ideal weather, the Goldeye Centre is also well-equipped for indoor recreation.There's no better way to get to know another camper (or a UN diplomat!) than by beating them in an intense game of ping-pong or foosball.
