This year we were pleased to host 36 youth from all over Manitoba at our Youth Leadership Camp.

Participants were treated to 3 days of learning and fun at the Riding Mountain Conference Centre, near scenic Clear Lake. Learning through participation was emphasized and the seminars encouraged participants to play an active role in their leadership development process. The educational topics covered included: communication and public speaking skills, values discussions, working effectively in a group setting, diversity, global development, cooperation and cooperatives and leadership skills.

Each participant that wishes to attend a seminar is encouraged to find a local co-op or credit union sponsor. We suggest you seek sponsorship from a...

  • credit union
  • retail co-op store/gas station
  • caisse populaire
  • housing co-op
  • Co-operators Insurance agent/office
  • CUMIS insurance office/agent
  • health care co-op
  • worker co-op
  • Co-op Trust Company office
  • co-op day care
  • water or utility co-op, or
  • a recreational co-op.

Participants can also be sponsored by their local band council, student council, parent, or other local business. The sponsor pays the registration fee on behalf of the participant.  Thanks so much to all the sponsors of our 2017 youth retreat!
