We will be hosting a 3 day virtual camp in an effort to connect our youth with MĂ©tis culture and way of life. Each day will include engaging and interactive workshops, focused on seasonal skills, traditional arts and crafts and community building. Participants will gain a greater understanding of their vibrant MĂ©tis culture and heritage and receive the resources needed to learn and practice these skills from the comfort of their own home. We truly hope you will join us in celebrating the fall season and MĂ©tis way of life. Access to technology and reliable internet is required to participate in the camp.

If you require additional support to participate, please contact, Cortnee Buchanan- Project Coordinator (information below).
