Co-operative Young Leaders Camp

Apply to win one of four sponsorships to attend CYL Summer Camp!

The Co-operative Young Leaders (CYL) camp has all the things that make summer camp fun like hiking, campfires, swimming, volleyball and hanging out. During the week long session, you'll learn valuable skills like how to be a leader and a team player. You'll also learn how to co-operate with others, solve problems and develop an increased sense of self-awareness.
“CYL camp was an amazing opportunity that helped me learn more about myself and my values. I also gained public speaking confidence, which will allow me to me more active in my local community. I’ve also made friendships with other participants from all across Ontario! Thank you PenFinancial for sponsoring me to attend CYL camp!”
