A week at the YES Camp is a summer experience like no other, and again this year Kootenay Savings wants to sponsor FOUR Kootenay-area youth to attend the camp for the adventure of a lifetime!
YES Camp is an amazing week long leadership experience at Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island. Focusing on the themes of self-awareness, co-operation, communication, leadership and global awareness, YES Camp provides participants with real skills to use at home and in their communities.
YES Camp also includes a ton of fun and exciting group activities, and participants have the opportunity to be a part of planning their week. There are always lots of games and events happening, including ultimate frisbee, soccer, swimming, improv theatre, talent shows, dancing, and arts and crafts.
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 Camp is a life-changing experience and an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and spend a week having fun!
