Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp

The Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp (RAYEC) is a one week business planning camp for youth aged 13-15 designed to improve business, academic and life skills through entrepreneurship. Held at Eagles Nest Ranch in the Cypress Hills, Alberta, this one week entrepreneurial-based camp combines the education of business training with a summer camp atmosphere.

It’s not only about numbers and business plans though. Everyone participates in summer camp experiences and recreational activities: zipline, archery, wall climbing and paint ball are just a few examples.

An additional component to RAYEC is the Youth Leadership Training Program.  Each year, 10 youth who have previously attended the camp return in a different capacity - to provide mentorship to campers. Youth leadership trainees benefit in the development of leadership capability, team building skills and community spirit.

Each year, Community Futures Highwood sends four youth from our region. Camper scholarships are sponsored by local businesses and organizations  Youth applicants are required to submit an essay outlining why they would be a good candidate for the camp and are expected to contribute some volunteer hours with the sponsoring company/organization.  This could include volunteering at a company event or making a presentation after the camp.


If you have any questions – contact Community Futures Highwood at infoatcfhighwood.net
