Co-operative Young Leaders Camp

What Our 2018 CYL Camp Participants Had to Say...

"I really enjoyed my time at CYL and learned a lot of things, both about the people I met at the camp and about leadership. I feel that the knowledge I gained will aid me to stand up as a leader and bring myself to do things I would never have considered before this week.”

“I had a great time at CYL. We did so many fun activities including paint fight, capture the flag and many fun leadership activities. I learned a lot but the most important thing I learned was how I can become a better leader and become more social in my community.”

CYL Camp and Base Camp

CYL Camp is a unique summer camp experience for youth ages 14-18. This series of week-long programs brings young people together from all across Ontario to learn about and practice the international co-operative principles, communication, and leadership through games, team building and community projects.

Base Camp invites youth ages 12-13 to experience a weekend adventure and learn about the co-operative principles in an interactive, hands on way. Participants will enjoy the traditions of the CYL program and work on a project that incorporates their strengths while working as a part of a team. 

Both programs are hosted by the Ontario Co-operative Association.
