Roots and Pathways - which one is for me?
Roots! The YES is offering four Roots programs this year for 14-16 year olds!
Who should sign up? Roots is the first level of The YES program. It is for new participants, or participants who have completed one Roots level camp but are still 14 – 16.
What do we do? Roots focuses on bringing together youth from all over the province and creating a strong, supportive, amazing community with everyone involved. Participants can expect to spend a week being themselves, learning about themselves, and making lifelong friends in the process. Focusing on the values of self-awareness, communication, leadership and co-operation, these retreats are a powerful introduction to co-operative youth leadership in a stimulating wilderness setting. Right on Cowichan Lake, the camps also include options for many outdoor activities including canoeing, soccer, ultimate frisbee and hiking.
Pathways! The YES is pleased to offer two Pathways programs this year for 16-18 year olds!
Who should sign up? New or returning participants ages 16-18.
What do we do? Pathways is the next step up from our Roots programs. Participants take on greater responsibility, and are challenged to expand their leadership, self-awareness, and team building skills in a spirit of fun and friendship. This camp gives participants a chance to become an even closer community, having already met each other at the Roots level.
All Camps will be taking place at Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island. Transportation is provided from Kelowna, Merritt, Abbotsford, Vancouver, Horseshoe Bay and Nanaimo. Participants must get themselves to one of these locations.
