2017 Youth Leadership Camp


Lancaster Branch #69 and its Ladies Auxiliary Honours the students that they sponsored to the 2017 Legion Youth Legion Leadership Camp.


The 58th Annual Royal Canadian Legion Youth Leadership Training Camp was held at Mount Allison University from July 9-16, 2017.      This is a co-ed camp sponsored by The Royal Canadian Legion, New Brunswick Command and is open to Grade 10 and 11 students in New Brunswick.  The 8-day camp is designed to teach leadership and organization, through sport and activities.


On December 18 Lancaster Branch #69 held a Joint Pot Luck Supper with its Ladies Auxiliary.      The four 2017 Youth Leadership Students that we jointly sponsored, and their families were invited to attend.


Lancaster Branch #69 and its Ladies Auxiliary who have been sponsoring youth leadership students for many years were very pleased to sponsor these four very dedicated students this year.     The three students in attendance told branch and L/A members what they thought of the camp and answered all questions that branch members asked them.

As always the campers had a great time, made lots of new friends and learned lessons they will take with them on their life journey. The New Brunswick Command would like to thank all our branches, the students, director, instructors, and the faculty of Mount Allison. . Very special thanks to Geneva Hicks, and Doreen Richards of Sackville Br. # 26 and  Westmorland Albert District Branches for providing the evening lunches.
