Description

The Métis Nation of Ontario is excited to be hosting the Summer Break Camp on August 4th - 9th, 2024, at Awenda Provincial Park, in Tiny, ON.

This 6-day camp is intended to inspire students to start planning for their future and to provide them with a deeper understanding of their Métis history and culture. Students will learn about the benefits of post-secondary education and develop valuable life skills along the way. Participants will enjoy cultural workshops throughout their stay and have the opportunity to connect with other Métis students from across Ontario.

The camp will immerse youth in their history, culture and way of life through engaging in activities that will allow them to practice and share the traditional skills and knowledge they acquire when they return to their home communities. The camp allows youth to interact with Senators, Métis knowledge holders, PCMNO members, MNO staff, and facilitators in events/activities that will span the duration of the camp. In order to be eligible to participate, all forms must be completed. The costs of travel, accommodations, and meals will be covered
