Camp Application Considerations:

a. Spaces are limited, submitting this application does not guarantee placement. Campers will be selected and notified after June 1, 2018.

2. Once a child is selected for camp, the Project Director will contact them regarding payment and travel planning.
a. Camp fee: $250

All youth that live in the NWT and fall within the designated ages are eligible to apply for NYL camps. We encourage all NWT youth to apply for our programming! NYL typically receives more applications than we can accommodate and youth that are not invited to participate will be put on a waitlist.

A committee will review all applications and select participants based on the following:

1. Regional representation- NYL strives to include youth from all communities in the NWT. Typically on a trip, there is one spot per community. This is done regardless of community size because NYL has found that larger communities have more opportunities for youth.

2. Need and access to similar programming- Camps are highly subsidized and NYL strives to include participants that do not have access to similar opportunities.

3. Application Questions- NYL uses the application questions to determine how interested youth are in NYL programming and how engaged they will be on the trip. We request that youth fill out the questions in their own words and take their time. If needed, youth can have assistance from an adult or friend, but please ensure the answers are in the youth's own words.

Northern Youth Leadership strives to inspire a generation of courageous young northern leaders and is a project of Tides Canada Initiatives (TCI). TCI is a shared platform providing governance, human resources, financial and grant management.

Northern Youth Leadership is an inclusive program and believes in the right of every youth to self identify.
