2022 CYL Camp Dates & Registration



Co-operative Young Leaders is a summer camp experience unlike any other for youth ages 13 to 18. This week-long camp brings youth participants together and empowers them to be Explorers, Trailblazers and Visionaries, while equipping them with the change-making tools and skills they need to succeed in the world. Our co-operative mentors work with youth participants to embrace and enhance their leadership potential. Participants develop self-confidence, learn from inspiring leaders about communion, team-building and leadership skills through co-operative activities. One part traditional camp experience and one part experiential education, this program takes youth out of the classroom environment and lets them lead.

CYL has three main goals:

  1. To provide youth with a fantastic summer camp experience in a safe and secure environment.
  2. To develop leadership skills and foster self-confidence and self-awareness.
  3. To create a stronger awareness of co-operatives and the principles that guide our sector.
