Sacred Earth Camp: Participant Application
AUGUST 3-16 2019
Sacred Earth Camp is a 2-week long residential program for environmental justice leadership in Southern British Columbia. We will spend one week at the Sorrento Centre near Kamloops and one week on a day-camp model in and around Vancouver. We are looking for a diverse group of youth and young adults (ages 13-25ish) who care deeply about our planet. Our living situation at Sorrento will be in cabins with bunks. During the day we will learn about the plants, animals and environmental justice issues in our Watershed. We will also learn concrete skills--like farming, conservation science, community organizing, anti-oppression, public speaking, spiritual practices, and activism--so that we can effectively make change in the world.
Please fill out the form below. The more you tell us about yourself, the more we can design our program for our participants. We work hard to include participants with disabilities and processing differences.
To get to know us a bit, please watch the two videos below.
If you have participated in camp before, you do not need to apply but you do need to contact us to confirm your place.
