Altitude Youth Experience

Table of Contents


In 2007, Spirit of BC created a new program for youth aged 16-18 to get them involved in their communities and developing leadership skills. That year, 65 youth joined the program.

The Altitude Youth Experience, supported by the Province of British Columbia, offered youth the opportunity to attend a leadership retreat at Camp Summit in Squamish. The youth then joined their local Spirit of BC committees to orgnaize events for Spirit of BC Week and inspire community members of all ages to get involved in sport and recreation, healthy living, arts and culture, literacy and volunteerism at the local level.
