This cross cultural camp is for Aboriginal young people from the ‘Namgis Nation and non Aboriginal young people from the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia.
We will be working with the local band members who will share and engage campers in Kwakwaka'wak stories, practices and traditions.
Campers will experience the richness of each others traditions and be affirmed in their practice, together and have a shared experience. Working together to dissolving prejudice and cultural assumptions, through songs, stories and games.
Set in a deliberate spiritual framework, campers will learn about this amazing island, its local history and marvel at the awesomeness of God through creation.
