Aki Virtual Camp Week


Opt-in (or opt-out) for virtual camp here!

You have been directed to this page because you have been invited to opt-in to the Aki Virtual Camp Week which is connected to the Aki Camp Kit you have ordered.

Join us for this virtual camp week to learn all about Aki/the land! We’ll be talking about Mother Earth’s structure, savanna ecosystems and controlled burning, reciprocity in relationships, plant medicines and traditional food systems! We will also be hearing from some of the incredible friends of TRACKS, including Beedahbin Peltier and Joe Pitawanakwat. You won’t want to miss this week of land-centered learning!

Dates & Times:

Aki Virtual Camp Week will take place August 9th - August 13th. On Monday through Friday of that week, your campers will be able to tune into two live camp sessions (morning and afternoon) with our TRACKS instructors and special guests. Each day, the camp sessions will be:

  • 10:00am-11:30am and
  • 1:00pm-2:30pm
While we would love to see your camper for both sessions each day as there will be new activities and teachings to explore each time we do understand that families have other plans this summer. Please still opt-in if you expect to attend any of the sessions.

Other Important Details

Your camper will need their Aki Camp Kit while they are participating in camp. The guaranteed delivery date for these kits is August 8th.

Please indicate if you will be opting-in or opting-out of the virtual camp week by August 6thThe Zoom details and waiver for virtual camp will also be shared by August 6th
