Become Part of Co-op Camp

SCYP is a partnership between SCA, our province’s co-ops and credit unions, and Saskatchewan youth. Being part of Co-op Camp can increase your community exposure, build and maintain relations with young people, and engage and educate your staff. You might even gain new members and foster new volunteers or employees.

Young people leave SCYP camps with an increased understanding of co-ops and credit unions. They have developed skills and self-confidence to become co-operative members, employees, academics and leaders. They’ve created new friendships. This is the foundation of the Co-op Camp “Magic” and we want you to be part of it.

Your organization can become part of Co-op Camp in a number of ways, including the following:

  1. Sponsor one or more young people to attend Co-op Camp.
    (You can also become a corporate or weekly session sponsor - contact us directly to learn more about these opportunities.)
  2. Promote Co-op Camp to your members, parents, grandparents, youth groups, etc.
    Don't forget to tell your staff, board, committee members and volunteers about SCYP so that they can help promote it, too.
  3. Send your employees or board members to Co-op Camp as Staff.
    This can help them achieve their performance management objectives and your organization's community outreach goals, too!
  4. Support Co-op Camp by donating time, funds or other resources.
    Fundraise on behalf of SCYP, or take part in the Co-op Classic Golf Tournament.

As your organization creates its annual financial and staffing budgets, please remember to plan for your involvement in the Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program!

Why Sponsor a young person?

Sponsoring one or more young people to attend the Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program is a great investment in the future of your organization and the health of the co-operative sector. 

Young people leave SCYP camps with an increased understanding of co-operatives and credit unions and the skills and self-confidence to become co-operative members, employees, academics and leaders. SCYP alumni often find volunteer opportunities or employment in our co-ops, credit unions and community organizations.
