Help Deaf Youth Canada Fundraise for CDYLC 2022

Dear Friends, Family, Community, 

Thank you for checking out our GoFundMe page! 

As you can tell, we are trying to raise some funds for our 2022 CDYLC Camp! 

What is CDYLC? 
Canadian Deaf Youth Leadership Camp is a bi-annual event hosted by DYC (Deaf Youth Canada) that lasts a full week. The motto of DYC is “By youth, for youth, about youth.” This year we are inviting Deaf Youth from across Canada between the ages 18 - 32. Normally, we cap the age limit at 30 but due to the pandemic, we are raising the age limit.

We are excited to announce the theme of this year’s camp is Reconnect, Reconcile, and Recreate!

We are looking forward to gathering again for the first time since the pandemic!

We understand that the pandemic has been difficult for many of us, especially financially! So, money will not be the only thing that can help us! If you cannot donate money at this time, please share the link to this GoFundMe with your network so this way, those with money can donate!

If you are able to donate, $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, etc will come a long way. 

Why donate to CDYLC?

We are fostering the next generation of leaders in the Deaf Community. Through CDYLC, we exchange knowledge, build connections, and plant the seeds of Deaf leadership in Canada. 

CDYLC is an excellent opportunity for Deaf Youth to gather especially since Canada is a humongous country and the number of opportunities to gather is really sparse. 

So what are we fundraising for? 

We are fundraising for costs to cover the following: 
- Cost of the Camp
- Fees for Guest Presenters
- Group Transportation (Shuttle Bus) 

If we fundraise enough money, we might be able to reduce the costs of camper’s admission fees which is currently $480.00 per camper, which is the total for seven days. This cost covers three meals per day, bed/cabin, access to clean shower, workshops, recreational activities, camper t-shirt, and a CDYLC hoodie.

Where is the camp?
Camp Pagweak, Pugwash, Nova Scotia

What will we do at camp? 
The focus is to cultivate our future Deaf leaders through education, team building activities, and socialization. There will be a plethora of activities including but not limited to: swimming, trail biking, archery, kayaking, and rock climbing.  The campsite is based right by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
