What’s in the young adult program?
Camp Suzuki: Howe Sound is a professional development program that prepares those aged 18+ to be champions of the Howe Sound region.
PART ONE: CAMP
From August 13 to 18, 2017, participants will be immersed in the unforgettable fun of outdoor summer camp. You’ll spend your mornings learning about the region’s amazing ecosystems, from Western-based science and traditional Squamish First Nation knowledge perspectives. In the evenings, you’ll learn the hard skills needed to be a successful conservation leader and community organizer.
Participants will leave camp empowered, connected and equipped to champion a healthy Howe Sound.
PART TWO: VOLUNTEER
Participants apply their skills and knowledge after camp through a part-time volunteer placement with the David Suzuki Foundation for the betterment of Howe Sound.
Volunteer to make a difference in Howe Sound by writing articles and opinion columns, hosting events in the region and raising awareness of the developments occurring in Howe Sound.
Participants will leave as ambassadors armed with a toolkit for leading change in their community’s environmental and social movements — along with tried and tested experience in the field.
