Thank you for your interest in staffing Co-op Camp! Co-op Camp isn’t just for youth: If you’re a co-op sector or credit union system employee, elected official, SCYP alumnus or volunteer aged 17 years of age or up, consider volunteering to staff one of the SCYP camps this summer.



Each SCYP session is staffed by six to ten individuals. Your co-op knowledge and life experience - coupled with our three-day training program - will enable you to be part of participatory learning experiences while interacting with Saskatchewan youth.

Many co-op employers consider SCYP to be professional development for their staff, or allow them to take the time as part of their volunteer days.

The dedication and commitment of the Co-op Camp staff teams is a key component to the success of the Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program over the past 90 years.

Whether you are from the co-op sector or SCYP alumni; returning or applying for the first time, please take a moment to look through the information noted below. 

  • "All About Staffing at Co-op Camp" is updated every year and features details about staff training, camp dates and your responsibilities at camp.
  • Read this special Co-op Camp staff feature article called "Co-op Camp Mythbusters" for the inside scoop on staffing Co-op Camp!
