It takes a village

The Mountain Youth Summer Camp is a six-day camp for youth aged 12–14 years old, designed to work in partnership with educational institutions, community-based organizations, parents, and the biking, climbing, and backcountry communities in Revelstoke.

It connects the natural strengths present in the Revelstoke “village” in order to create leadership and self-empowering learning for youth based in our local mountain environment.
