Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp

Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp and Community Futures are excited to partner with Rotary District 5360 to bring you Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp (RAYEC).

Taking place at Eagles Nest Ranch in Cypress Hills, RAYEC is a week-long camp held yearly in August that teaches youth aged 13-15 about entrepreneurship and business skills within a summer camp atmosphere. Campers hear from guest speakers and participate in workshops to learn the components of a business plan such as marketing, advertising, cash-flow and record keeping. Youth are put into business teams where they plan out a business idea, meet with suppliers and bankers and build a product or a service. On the final day of camp, these youthful business ventures are open for business! Every product or service is sold for real money and, once Campers pay back their business loans, they get to split their profits amongst their team.

It’s not only about numbers and business plans though. These youth also get to participate in a variety of summer camp experiences and recreational activities, such as ziplining, wall climbing, paint balling, and yard games.

An additional component to RAYEC is the Youth Leadership Training Program.  Each year, 10 youth who have previously attended the camp to attend the camp 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.
