Founded in 2020, Citrus was built on the belief that camps are an important part of our lives. Our mission is to enable youth programs to grow and provide the best memories for all of their attendees. We understand the difficulty of organizing a camp and the stress that it can put on organizers. We hope to relieve the stress and allow you to focus on what really matters.
Our story began back in 2019, when Andrew and David united through the Conexus Cultivator and began working towards delivering a solution to change how organizations collaborate and plan camps and youth programs. Their shared experience with organizing and operating youth programs provided them with a foundation of knowledge and understanding of the pain points of running a youth program. Despite a global pandemic, we focused on connecting with our community of youth programs through our webinar series, Making an Impact.
We have launched the company in 2020 and have seen unprecedented growth. Youth programs thrive using Citrus, and because of our company, more youth will attend programs in the future, and they will be successful as a result. Citrus is the powering force behind youth programs, and the more we can grow our team we can grow the amount of youth participating in youth programs in Canada. Our training covers health and safety practices as related to job activities. We provide a safe, inclusive, and healthy work environment free of harassment and discrimination (e.g. hiring practices, policies, guidelines).
