Youth Character Initiative (YCI) is an initiative that has multiple programs within it.  Summer YCI is a leadership focused day camp program for 9 – 14 year olds that runs five days a week through the summer.  Summer YCI is rooted in the 40 Developmental Assets and its activities and projects are often related to a particular asset or grouping of assets.  Other Summer YCI activities include volunteering in the community at places such as Five Loaves Food Shelf, swimming in the Centre pool, and weekly field trips.  YCI also offers fun evening and weekend events for 9 year olds and up including Tween and Teen Nights and Up All Nights.  Many YCI programs are offered for free or at a reduced cost to try and engage as many young people in the community as possible.
