Co-operative Young Leaders Program

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.

Since its inception in 1967, over 3,500 young people have gone through the program, thanks to all the amazing co-operatives and credit unions that have supported it over the years!

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.

We recognize that COVID-19 and other associated social issues have impacted youth in many different ways. At CYL we provide a safe environment that follows the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for overnight camps as outlined by the Ontario Ministry of Health. It is the policy of Ontario Co-operative Association that all participants, facilitators and staff be fully vaccinated.
