Looking for a Summer Adventure? North Peace Savings Wants to Send You to The Yes! Camp

North Peace Savings and Credit Union invests $10,000 in four lucky teens who will attend an empowering week at BC’s Yes! Youth Leadership Camp

Fort St John, April 21 –  Looking for a summer adventure? Think you have what it takes to be a leader? If you answered yes then North Peace Savings wants to hear from you! This summer, North Peace Savings 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.

“I will never forget how much like a family everyone became,” enthusiastically explained by previous camp attendee Bree Mytron. “Watching people become such good friends and coming out of their shells in just one week inspires the campers to take these skills back to their communities,” added Bree. Bree attended camp through one of the sponsorships by North Peace Savings and Credit Union last summer. She eagerly explained that she will be applying to the Yes! Camp next summer, but this time as a counsellor.

If you are interested in applying for one of four Yes! Camp sponsorships please download the application form from www.npscu.ca. Please submit completed applications to your nearest North Peace Savings location or email it to hdesarmia@npscu.ca. Deadline to submit an application is June 3, 2014.
