The Cultural Summer Camp provides the opportunity to experience many of the healthy, contemporary and traditional lifestyles of Aboriginal Peoples including all aspects of the medicine wheel (spiritual, mental, physical and emotional).
Our Cultural Camps are sponsored by FVACFSS and other community partners, so there is no fee to Aboriginal People and FVACFSS participants. We offer the following camps:
Cultural camp for all First Nations, Métis and Inuit youth ages 12-19. Youth learn topics through recreational activities and circles.
A cultural camp for young men ages 12-19. Young men are lead by elders/male role models through a series of games and cultural ceremonies that provide guidance and blessings as a boy transitions into manhood.
Natural Changes Camp
A cultural camp for young ladies ages 10-16. Young women are lead by elders/female role models through a series of games and cultural ceremonies that provide guidance and blessings as a girl transitions into womanhood.
Family Spirit Camp
Family Spirit Camp gives families an understanding of traditions, culture, and improved communication and healing through interactive activities.
Caregiver Camp is hosted each year to give foster care families an understanding of traditions and culture.
