Evolved from previous years, we will be co-running this camp with our mentor organization, Power of Hope. The location of our 2017 youth camp will be in BC’s lower mainland area, at the inspiring Lhawathet Retreat Centre from August 16-23rd.

This small youth-to-staff ratio allows us to provide a safe environment where mentorship relationships can thrive. At every camp, we strives to bring together a truly diverse group of youth and staff, and aim for diversity of all kinds: ethnic, cultural, religious, class, personality, life experience, and more.

IndigenEYEZ energized me: the facilitators lifted my spirits, they gave me a sense of belonging to my self, to aboriginal people, to our traditions, and to our culture. They empowered me to make changes in myself and step out of the box.
