Applications are now being accepted for a program dedicated to sending four local teens down to Lake Cowichan to build their leadership skills.
The Yes! Camp runs through July and August, and is aimed at teens between the ages of 14 and 18. At the week-long camp, participants learn leadership and team building skills while canoeing, hiking, swimming, and connecting with youth from around the province.
The North Peace Credit Savings and Credit Union and the Fort St. John Co-Op are looking to send four locals to the camp this summer.
"The YES! Camp develops this potential by providing encouraging mentorship, skill-strengthening programs and activities, and a space for teens to grow and develop into the unique, capable leaders that they are," a news release reads.
The deadline to apply is May 24, 2019.
