Camp Suzuki: Howe Sound young adult program F.A.Q.
Why only $435? Why isn't it more expensive?
Our young adult camp costs less than the children's camp because this program requests that participants use what they’ve learned in an applied setting in the Howe Sound community. Participants “pay” for the program financially and through their volunteer placements.
We’re hoping we can provide bursaries to those with financial needs. The application process will ask if you’d like to fill out an additional questionnaire for a bursary. Details for this bursary will come no later than May 2017.
What are the workshops and activities?
The sessions cover Squamish Nation culture and knowledge, community organizing, conservation leadership and Howe Sound ecosystems. We bring in facilitators daily to cover topics that past participants have enjoyed and our advisory committee has recommended. We aim for all facilitators to be from the David Suzuki Foundation or working within the Howe Sound region.
Our camp schedule will be released in early summer 2017. Registrants will be notified when it is posted.
What will participants get from the camp?
- Be part of a cutting-edge leadership program.
- Receive hands-on training in community organizing, leadership, goal-setting, issues-framing and project management.
- Strengthen understanding of our interconnection and interdependency with nature through daily outdoor exploration and recreation.
- Be inspired by provocative speakers, mentors and guests.
- Camp Suzuki — An unforgettable adventure.
