ACCA Summer Camp Sponsorships
At EQUS, we believe in the importance of involving youth in the co-operative values that guide us. Each year EQUS sponsors four youth from our membership who are interested in learning about the co-operative values, principles, and business model to attend the Alberta Community and Co-operative Association (ACCA) Youth Leadership Camp.
The program provides an opportunity for youth to develop leadership and teamwork skills and build confidence, relationships and communities. The seven-day camps take place at the Goldeye Centre near Nordegg and are for youth ages 11 - 18.
This year, camps are scheduled to begin June 30, running through to mid-July:
- Grad Camp: June 30 - July 6
- Pre-Teen Camp: June 30 - July 6
- Teen A: July 6 - July 12
- Youth: July 12 - July 18
If you're an EQUS member and you have a youth in your family looking to develop their leadership skills, build friendships, and learn about community and co-operatives encourage them to request a sponsorship!
To request sponsorship, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know why you would like to attend the ACCA Youth Leadership Camp. Requests must be received by Friday, May 6, 2022 to be considered.
