The YES is an amazing week long leadership experience. Focusing on the themes of self-awareness, co-operation, communication, leadership and global awareness, The YES camps provide participants with real skills to use at home and in their communities.
The YES also includes a ton of fun and exciting group activities. Participants have the opportunity to be a part of planning their week and we have everything from Capture the Flag to amazing talent shows. There are always many options outdoors to play field games like ultimate or soccer, swim in the lake, or take a break in the shade. Craft supplies are always out where you can make a gift for your Secret Friend or a bracelet to take home. Many participants favorite part of camp is Reflections, while others love to watch improv theatre or decorate for the dance.
The camp is focused on building self-esteem and confidence in a tight community of youth. Participants leave having made friends they will keep forever. The YES is a life-changing experience and an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and spend a week having fun with people from all over BC.
