Youth Leadership Programs

Youth Leadership Camps Canada (YLCC) is celebrating its 18th year in 2010. Over the last 18 years more then 4000 youth from over 20 countries have come to YLCC to experience and grow with us. Young leaders from all over the globe have become part of our family and credit our camp as part of the very foundation that has become them.

In 2004 YLCC found it’s permanent home on the shores of Lake Simcoe, just 60 minutes North of Toronto. 2011 will again see 8 weeks of opportunity to share our skills and knowledge with your children.

Our motto is “Move You to Fly!”. Every staff member of YLCC has dedicated themselves to do just that. To provide each and every camper with tools to succeed. To achieve better results in school, to have more self confidence, to manage their time and set achievable real goals. Our campers truly have a head start on their personal success.

In 2007 YLCC formed an inspiring alliance with Robin Sharma and Sharma Leadership International. Robin is the best selling author of more then 11 international best selling books including “The Greatness Guide” and “The Leader Who Had No Title”. We combine the best that Robin has to offer with our 18 years of proven youth leadership training. What an opportunity for your son or daughter. Too often we here adults say after working with Robin or reading one of his powerful books, “I wish I learned these tools when I was young!”. Now your children can. We offer 10 different programs for young leaders aged 7-18.

Find out why many executives of fortune 500 companies have sent their children to us. Not only do they get to experience a true Canadian summer camp, but they get to surround themselves with the best youth leadership training available today!
