At YLCC, we teach Leadership. We strive for every camper to graduate from our programs being better prepared for their daily lives. Campers that participate in our programs are excited to grow as leaders and step out of their comfort zone
We have developed the ‘Balanced Based Leadership’ system. Beyond campfires and singsongs, campers will experience our progressive cutting-edge leadership development system. All of our programs are infused with this philosophy.
As campers progress through each level, they will learn more about leadership and how to harness their own abilities. YLCC uses our unique leadership in action approach, a very interactive, hands-on and high-energy style of teaching. Campers are surprised that they are learning skills through fun.
Every program at YLCC is counselled by our highly trained, motivated staff most of whom graduated from our programs. They've lived the YLCC experience, learned from it, built from it and know it. You will have peace of mind knowing that YLCC is a certified member of the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) and delivers quality programming!
It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing we must cancel Overnight YLCC summer camp programs for 2021. We are hopeful we will be able to run Day Camp.
Our first priority at YLCC has always been to keep our campers, families, staff, and camper communities safe, and this remains the primary focus in all of our decisions. Being this close to the summer season, with no guidelines on how to safely open from Provincial and local authorities, the logistics of safely opening, preparing our site and programs, hiring a complete staff team as well as managing many other obstacles caused by the pandemic, it is now clear that we are unable to deliver a traditional camp experience this summer to our campers. This is a huge loss to all of our campers, families, staff, and community. We understand how much camp means to all of you and we know the disappointment that this decision brings. We share your disappointment and want you to know we have not taken this decision lightly.
