Rob Conroy is a high school gym teacher. Several years ago the board asked if he would teach a class of students who had a high likelihood of dropping out and never graduating.
After a few weeks, attendance levels began to increase. The local board of education invested and Muskoka Woods came alongside him to help give his students hope and ultimately show them success. On this episode of Beyond The Woods, President and CEO of Muskoka Woods, John McAuley, speaks with Rob about how he uses the camp to move his students from a place of hopelessness to confidence and beyond.
