Sacred Earth Camp is a 2-week long residential program for environmental justice leadership in lower Mainland BC, Coast Salish Territory. We are looking for a diverse group of youth and young adults (ages 13-25ish) who care deeply about our planet. We will be sleeping in a barn at Southlands Heritage Farm during week one, and at a permaculture project in Powell River during week 2 --with a possible sleep over at a land defenders resistance camp in between. 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.
The more you tell us about yourself, the more we can design our program for our participants.To get to know us a bit, please watch the two videos below.
If you have participated in camp before this year will be different in several ways: week 2 will be outside the metro-Vancouver area, we are making space for participants from other regions who can take what they learn home with them, there will be more time for hanging-out, being in nature and growing relationships.
SACRED EARTH CAMP HAS SPOTS LEFT FOR YOUTH OF COLOUR, INDIGENOUS YOUTH, AND MALE IDENTIFIED YOUTH. PLEASE APPLY.
