At CCEC, we are proud of our members who contribute to the Camp YES Scholarship Fund allowing us to cover the Registration Fee for youth to attend the one week co-operative leadership camp. We hear from campers and their family of their transformative experience as they learned tools and skills to create positive change in their family, school, and community.
At the camp, youth expand their leadership and team building skills while connecting with youth from around the province. Camp YES recognizes that COVID-19 and other associated social issues have impacted our youth in many different ways, and look forward to providing community spaces that focus on building leadership, resiliency, connection, mental wellness and more.
Chelsea Lake, ED for Camp YES shares their philosophy on developing leadership skills, “Our programs are not meant to produce student class presidents, they’re meant to inspire personal integrity, personal growth, the development of self-worth and the ability to connect authentically with others. We talk about a theory of change that relies on metaphors like the ripple effect, the butterfly effect, the snowball effect or the domino effect. It’s all about being yourself, being conscientious, doing what you think is right, and inspiring others to do the same.”
