In 2018, Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp and Community Futures partnered with Rotary District #5360 to become Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp. Same great camp, just a new name!

But what exactly is RAYEC?

RAYEC is a week-long camp that takes place every August for youth ages 13- 15 who are interested in learning about business and entrepreneurship. The main focus of this camp is to educate youth about marketing, advertising, preparing a cash-flow statement and writing a business plan. Campers set up their own businesses and use real money which they borrow from actual bankers. The last day is “Business Day” at the camp, where campers have the opportunity to open and operate their businesses. The youth also get to participate in many fun recreational activities throughout their week at camp.

RAYEC accepts 60 youth age 13-15 each year based on their applications. This camp is FREE to attend for the campers that are selected, thanks to the generous support of our partners and sponsors. There is also an opportunity for 10 previous campers to attend as Youth Leaders. For more information on becoming a camper or youth leader, please visit the Apply page.

RAYEC campers and youth leaders must live in the Rotary District 5360 region.  This region extends south from Lacombe to the Alberta border and includes Kindersely, SK.

Lemonade Day

Here's your chance to be the boss!


Kids! Are you ready to run your own business and have fun at the same time?

Lemonade Day is a Free, fun program where you learn to run your own business - a Lemonade Stand! When you join Lemonade Day you will learn all the skills you need, pair with a local business location, earn money, give back and so much more!

If you are in kindergarten or a higher grade, you can join Lemonade Day.

How Lemonade Day Works:


Your parents Register you for Lemonade Day (Please visit our Mentor Page for a full list of participating Lemonade Day towns)


You will come to Lemonade University (visit our Mentor Page for a full list of Lemmy University Towns), where our instructor will give you a backpack with an awesome Lemonade Day workbook, or access to the My lemonade Day App, that will help teach you everything you need to know to set goals and make a plan for your Lemonade Stand.  Best of all, you don't have to work your business plan alone, our instructor will guide you through all the steps. 

At  Lemmy University class you will talk about things like choosing a business partner, selecting a local business location for your stand, designing your stand, developing your Lemonade recipe, practicing food safety, advertising, creating a budget and so much more!


You will build your Lemonade Stand, perfect your lemonade recipe, find a local business to pair with for a high traffic location for your stand and put all your Lemonade University lessons to work.  One of the most unique and wonderful things about joining Lemonade Day is that you get the opportunity to partner with local businesses in your participating Lemonade Day town and "rent" a business location for your Lemonade Stand.  This means you will get to setup your stand in a busy part of town where you will be able to attract lots of customers to your business.


On Lemonade Day - June 17, 2023, you and all the other participating kids across Northern Alberta will set up Lemonade Stands and run your businesses for the day! You will keep all the profit you make, allowing you to practice the important Lemonade Day lesson of spend some, save some and share some.
