Elders’ Outdoor Education Camp

The traditional philosophy of the Indigenous Peoples is centered on the holistic view that everything is interconnected, that humanity is part of the ecosystem. With this concept we have developed an annual outdoor 2-day camp that focuses on the First Peoples Principles of Learning to guide students to this understanding.
