About Us

Hey, Camper!

We’re so glad you’re here. Let us introduce ourselves…

CTS Youth Society is a non-profit organization that aims to connect every youth in Metro Vancouver with their natural environment, their community, and each other through life-changing outdoor experiences. For youth and by youth, CTS provides free and accessible community education through environmental stewardship, leadership programs, and public service.

For over 20 years, we have curated a space that allows youth to get their hands dirty, spend time outside, burn marshmallows, capture the flag, eat carrots from their own community garden, tell stories around a campfire, teach each other life lessons, learn outdoor skills, and learn even more about themselves.

We are dedicated to developing leadership and social responsibility in youth through outdoor recreation, environmental stewardship, and youth ownership.

To put it simply, we are for youth, by youth.
