YES Camp


Fort St John, April 28 – Looking for a summer adventure? Think you have what it takes to be a leader? If you answered yes then North Peace Savings & Credit Union (NPSCU) wants to hear from you!

This summer, NPSCU will be sending four youth aged 14-18 to British Columbia’s Yes! Youth Leadership Camp for a week long retreat. A $10,000 investment from the credit union makes this costly adventure to the Southern Vancouver Island camp more accessible for teens living in Northern British Columbia.

Located on Lake Cowichan, the Yes! Youth Camp has been offering week-long leadership retreats for over 40 years. Campers will focus on themes of self-awareness, confidence, communication, teamwork and leadership skills while partaking in various activities like games, swimming, crafts, canoeing and hiking. The combination of personal development paired with outdoor activities make this once in a lifetime week that campers will never forget.

Alex Gaal, one of our attendees from last summer, was eager to share her experience with us when she returned. In addition to all of the great activities, she said that she “learned about peeking out of her comfort zone and gaining more confidence.” Alex also shared “the group activities were a lot of fun. We learned how to work as a team and work together.”

If you are interested in applying for one of four Yes! Camp sponsorships please download the application from www.npscu.ca. Please submit completed applications to your nearest NPSCU service centre or email it to hdesarmia@npscu.ca. Deadline to submit an application is June 2nd, 2015.
