Youth Campus

Youth Campus will provide young people with a vital creative area focused on developing strong western cultural roots through education and the performing arts.

Located on the banks of the Elbow River, across from Riverfront Park, this best-practice campus will feature ample green space and be custom-designed for indoor and outdoor classrooms, training and performing.

For the first time Stampede School, The Young Canadians School of the Performing Arts, and Calgary Stampede Showband will share facilities. This will foster boundless creative and artistic synergies. Public charter school Calgary Arts Academy will also make its new home on Youth Campus. This is where new generations of Calgary’s most spirited citizens will be nurtured.

Arts space has always been at a premium in Calgary. For 44 years the Stampede’s performance programs have developed space for planning, learning and practicing – both on Stampede Park and throughout the city. To honour this effort and commitment, Youth Campus will develop the talents of young creative people, bringing their gifts to life and enriching audiences in Calgary and around the world.
