We support a culture camp where youth connect to their culture, to the land, to each other, and to adults and elders in the community.  Activities are based on seasonal teachings that include understanding the land, the animals, our connectivity to them, how to use different plants as medicines, how to harvest respectfully from the land, how to treat ourselves and each other with respect, how to make offerings to elders and the land when we receive teachings or ask for help, how to be safe on the land. The result will be improved health, wellness, confidence and pride of our youth and overall a stronger community.
