Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneur Camp

The Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp (RAYEC) is a week-long leadership and entrepreneurship camp for approximately 70 youth ages 12-18 (60 Campers, 10 Youth Leaders) that is held at Eagles Nest Ranch in Cypress Hills. The Camp runs for a week in August.  During their time at camp the youth engage in teamwork and collaboration to create an idea for a business and then go on to learn how to make that idea into a tangible product that they then sell on the last day of camp.  

During the week of camp, the campers are taught about the many aspects that go into running a successful business. This includes doing cash flows, marketing plans, a break-even analysis and much more.

The primary activity during camp is teaching campers how to create a business. They do this with the help of their Team Leader, Youth Leader and also from modules that are delivered via group instruction (these are taught by Volunteers filling the Instructor positions.) They are each provided with a comprehensive and in-depth workbook that covers common business terms, ideas and practices.

In addition to the educational focus of the camp, the youth are provided with a schedule of fun activities and events that will help them create memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Some of these events include wall-climbing, swimming, paintball, Zipline, movie night, talent show, and campfire/sing-along.

Throughout the week campers are instructed by experienced industry professionals on all the key aspects of running a business. This includes creating a business name, cash-flow, market analysis and customer service. They are guided along the way with engaging activities like “The Lemonade Game”. For each team, In order to create their business products, they require supplies. They purchase these supplies on a trip into Medicine Hat where they are able to spend the loan-money that they applied for from real-life bankers on the Wednesday of camp (Banker’s Day).

On the final day of camp (Business Day), the youth are set up in a tradeshow-style fashion to sell their products to their friends and family that have shown up to encourage and support their camper.

Unfortunately, the 2020 RAYEC is cancelled due to safety concerns over Covid-19. We hope to be able to offer this exciting opportuntiy to our community's youth in the future.
