Mid Co-op believes the best way to build a co-operative future is to advance life skills independence, responsibility and community building in our youth leaders. Each year, Co-op sponsors three young people for the BCCA YES Camp– Youth Excellence Society!
The YES leadership camp is a summer camp that provides week long leadership retreats for youth from all over British Columbia. Skills’ training is offered for 14-18 year-olds in the areas of self-awareness, co-operation, communication, global awareness, environmental sustainability and leadership. Participants take part in the creation of a strong community of support, respect and growth in the summer camp. If you are a Mid Island Co-op Member with a loved one that deserves to be a part of the “Youth Excellence Society”, we want to hear their story. Mid Island Co-op’s The YES Camp sponsorship applications will be accepted beginning March 6th to April 28th, 2017. A Summer experience that will last you a lifetime!
This year Mid Island Co-op is pleased to send Kiana Hodge, Caitlin McCandles and Magnun Hanson to the 2016 YES Camp!
