camp youth

This summer Flagstaff County sponsored 12 students to attend a seven-day ACCA youth camp at Goldeye Centre as part of the ACCA Co-operative Youth Program. During a recent Council meeting, five of those students presented to councillors their camp experiences, relating how much they learned and how much fun they had, and expressing thanks for the County sponsorship.

The annual camps, divided into four levels (pre-teen, teen, youth and grad), provide an opportunity for students aged 11 to 18 to develop leadership and teamwork skills, while building independence and confidence, and creating lasting friendships.

The Flagstaff County-sponsored students that attended were as follows:

Teen A (July 5 – 11)

  • Ethyn Prehn – Returning
  • Austin Howell – Returning
  • Breanna Anderson – New
  • Colby Kuefler – New
  • Rebecka Kuilboer – New

Youth (July 11 - 17)

  • Cayden Cannady – Returning
  • Kyanna Fordice – Returning
  • James Cox – New
  • Ainsley Knodel – New
  • Cameron Cannady – New

Teen B (July 17 - 23)

  • Jenna Docksteader – Returning
  • Kiana Piche - Returning

We received a total of 12 applications (6 returning, 6 new) to attend the camp, with a budget to send 12 youth to the program.
