Mar 3, 2020—Cawston, BC: IndigenEYEZ has been going through some big changes. We are a small operation with a bold vision of helping to repair the fabric of our communities. In order to succeed, we must align our limited resources with initiatives that maximize impacts.
Unfortunately, we must announce that our 7-day summer youth camp will not be held in 2020. We are taking this summer off to refocus our efforts. If we host youth camps, but don’t also support the communities that participants come from, then change is limited and temporary. In 2021, we plan to continue to offer our 7-day summer youth camp but, ultimately, repairing our cultural fabric is our goal.
We don’t want to leave you hanging this summer!
If you were looking forward to returning to our youth camp this summer there is still a very cool opportunity coming up. “Light The Fire” is Power of Hope’s annual youth camp on Cortes Island, BC. This year it is being held from July 9th -16th. If you attended or heard about ImanginNATION in 2017—this was us collaborating with the team at Power of Hope.
Their camp is very similar to ours. Both IndigenEYEZ and Power of Hope are rooted in the same creative and arts leadership methodologies, and some of our facilitators will be working at the Power of Hope camp. If you are interested but think the cost might keep you from going, you can apply for a full or partial IndigenEYEZ scholarship. Please contact us here:
Best to act fast, camp registration for Power of Hope begins March 1st.
More good news!
To maximize our impacts in repairing our communities, we have been hard at work over the winter months preparing a new program initiative. We are excited to announce the first IndigenEYEZ Summer Institute. This training is to empower camp leaders, youth workers, and knowledge keepers to take our transformative facilitation methods into your own community programs.
Registration, dates, and more information about
the IndigenEYEZ Summer Institute will be sent out in mid-March.
Can’t wait for summer? Join us in Kelowna at Champions of Change on March 16th and 17th!
