Co-Operative Young Leaders Summer Camp

FirstOntario truly cares about improving the lives of our Members and the communities we serve. One of the ways we help is by supporting youth in their pursuit of learning opportunities and higher education.

Co-operative Young Leaders (CYL) is a leadership development program that brings together youth from across Ontario. Every spring, FirstOntario accepts applicants to sponsor summer CYL camp opportunities to help foster community, growth and leadership with our young Members. The Co-operative Young Leaders (CYL) camp has all the things that make summer camp fun like hiking, campfires, swimming, volleyball and meeting new friends. During the week-long session, participants will develop leadership, problem solving and communication skills. They'll also learn about co-operative values and what makes credit unions different.

This unique co-operative leadership experience is specifically designed for young Members between the ages of 14 and 18. There are three camp levels beginning from Junior through to Intermediate and Senior.
