A little bit about us …

RockRidge Canyon is a Young Life of Canada property located in Princeton, BC, Canada.  At RockRidge Canyon, teenagers are treated to the resort-quality facilities for which Young Life has become known.  Kids can get away from the pressures of everyday life, have fun with friends and their Young Life leaders, and hear the message of God’s love in terms they can understand.  Young Life camping involves high adventure, lots of fun, great food and excellent speakers.  Each year, more than 2,000 kids from across Canada and as far away as Europe or Asia, spend a week at RockRidge Canyon, having an experience that many describe as the best of their lives.  From September through June, when not hosting Young Life camps, RockRidge Canyon rents its excess capacity, serving as a conference and retreat centre for businesses, churches, and schools.

Since Young Life began in Canada in 1954, our staff and volunteers have cared enough to leave the comfort of their adult worlds and enter the arena of high school and junior high school life.  Trained Young Life leaders are committed to friendships with kids – no strings attached.  We go where kids are and spend time in their world playing road hockey, going to the mall, watching a basketball game, or heading to the ski hill.  Young Life leaders build bridges of friendship in order to “earn the right to be heard.”  We are all about communicating God’s love and the Christian message to kids in terms they can understand.  Young Life values and respects all young people, and welcomes all teenagers, both junior and senior high, regardless of religious beliefs.  With staff in over 40 communities throughout BC, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, Young Life of Canada employs more than 120 staff, and works with over 500 volunteers.
