2024 Weeks & Dates

Sending a youth to CYL camp is a decision you won't regret!


Participants will explore the wonder of co-operatives as they learn about their history and discover the CYL community that awaits! They will gain an understanding of the values and behaviours of leadership, teambuilding, and communication skills, and learn what makes a “great” leader.

Campers will have fun meeting new friends and enjoying traditional camp activities, all the while learning to lead their week at camp.


Participants will blaze a trail towards co-operation as we focus on our CYL community, learn to overcome communication challenges, and lead the way towards building great teamwork and co-operative leadership skills. Activities focus on stereotyping, the rumour mill, the influence of social media, as well as diversity and equality. Participants will also begin taking over leading their week at camp, while having fun exploring the great outdoors and enjoying traditional camp activities. This is a great opportunity to reunite with old friends and meet new ones in a supportive environment.


Participants will implement the vision and imagination to shape the future of co-operatives, as they become innovative young leaders with the knowledge and skills to change the world! They will solidify basic knowledge of the co-operative business model, while gaining tools to make a difference in their communities. Participants work in teams to create a co-operative that addresses a need in their community, and develop a communication and marketing plan which is presented to a panel of senior co-operative representatives for constructive feedback. Visionaries take over the responsibility of leading the camp with the support of their facilitators.
