Youth Leadership Camps - building leaders on a foundation of fun.

Until Camp!

Programs & Calendar

YLCC offers a variety of programs for campers in Kindergarten to Grade 12. We offer both Day Camps and Residential Camps for campers to participate in. Each program is counseled by our highly trained staff.

Through our unique leadership curriculum we challenge campers to push their limits to learn more about leadership and themselves. The programs work progressively allowing campers to return each year to gain a deeper understanding of their leadership style and discover more about themselves. All programs are designed to be world class and help campers discover their true potential.

Use the drop down menu and select the age of your camper to see what programs are available or scroll down to determine which program best suits your camper.

We are happy to help you determine which program would best suit your camper if you contact our office.
