Evolved from previous years, the goal of the 2019 IndigenEYEZ Leadership Training Camp is to support our emerging leaders, ages 15 to 30, to become healthy & impactful change makers, activists and ambassadors for our land and water.
This 7-day on the land training camp is for Indigenous youth and mentors who want to strengthen your skills in delivering your own workshops on climate change, water stewardship, and land advocacy in your own community.
The location of our 2019 youth camp will be in BC’s South Okanagan, just outside of Hedley BC, from July 14-21st.
Seats are limited! Don’t miss out on this life-changing experience!
Our camps provide a learning experience that brings creativity and the arts together with culture and on-the-land activities. Our facilitators are trained to create a safe and welcoming space for all participants. Building a strong sense of community is central to our program – participants leave with new friends and mentors who can support them as they grow in their environmental leadership, and cultural & community building work.
Each day, choose from exciting arts and nature-based workshops led by our staff of inspiring artists, musicians, naturalists and change makers.
Our 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: gender, age, LGBTQ2S, cultural, life experience and backgrounds.
