Let’s get our Ontario co-op youth to camp (for free!) this summer
Published May 18, 2022
UPDATE: The deadline for applications has been extended to June 10, 2022.
Co-operative Young Leaders (CYL) is a summer experience unlike any other!
Every year, youth living in Ontario housing co-ops are chosen to spend a week at CYL camp. Some return and get more involved in their co-op and in the broader co-op community – like CHF Canada board director Sarah Jensen!
CYL Camp is held at the Co-operative Education Centre in beautiful Aylmer, Ontario. Enjoy campfires, swimming, hikes in the woods and learning about all things co-op.
Camp dates for 2022:
- Visionaries (Ages 17-18) – Saturday, July 9 – Friday, July 15
- Trailblazers (Ages 15-16) – Sunday, July 17 – Friday, July 22
- Explorers A (Ages 13-14) – Sunday, July 24 – Friday, July 29
- Explorers B (Ages 13-14) – Sunday, July 31 – Friday, August 5
Application for sponsorship:
- complete the CYL Sponsorship application
