The YES is a registered charity that serves youth in over 90 communities in BC through our various programs. Much of our sponsorship and support comes through co-ops and credit unions, but we rely on donations like yours to provide subsidies to families with financial need or at-risk youth. 



Over 70% of the youth who attend The YES summer camps are partially or fully sponsored. 


Our programs wouldn't be possible without our staff team, who volunteer over 4500 hours each year.


In 2018, 41% of The YES Camp participants were at-risk youth, defined as having three or more at-risk indicators as outlined by the Government of Canada's Social Determinants of Health.


The YES is a charitable, non-profit organization. Donations are used for a variety of costs, from purchasing camp supplies to sponsoring teenagers to attend our camps. You have two options to choose from when giving a donation; you can donate online or send a cheque in the mail. If you would prefer to donate items, please contact us. If you choose to send your donation as a cheque make sure to include a return address so we can send you a receipt.
