Oshkwazin Trailblazer Summer 2024 Land Camps

TRACKS Oshkwazin will be hosting our Trailblazer Land Camps once again this summer!

Trailblazer Land Camps provide an opportunity for Indigenous youth to experience activities related to traditional Indigenous knowledge, create community, and learn from Elders and Knowledge Holders. All Land Camps are based around a Traditional Knowledge topic with teachings shared by an invited guest, as well as a craft or hands-on activity. Each year, topics of the Land Camps are chosen by our Summer Trailblazers. Over the years, topics have included: Berry teachings, Water and fish teachings, Medicine wheel teachings, Shaker making, Basket weaving and more!

More information on the location and themes for each land camp will be announced throughout the summer. Stay tuned to this page where we will announce the topics of each land camp!

All land camps are open to Indigenous youth ages 13-18 and will be running from 10:00am-3:00pm on Thursdays. Lunch will be provided for participants along with a $25 honorarium. Participants who attend all 4 land camps will also receive a gift!
