Summer Time is here! Do you know a child or teen age (8-11), (12-15), (16-17) that would like to be active, have fun, live Anishinaabe culture, be around elders, speak Anishinaabemowin, learn to paddle a canoe/kayak and receive certification with a qualified instructor and be involved with an environmental stewardship project?
The ASWCO N7 Multi Sport & Cultural Camp in Sagamok Anishnawbek First Nation will be held August 9th, 10th & 11th, 2016. Our learning will include: Anishinaabe teachings on tobacco, moccasin games, recreational canoe/kayak certification, an introduction to wrestling/mixed martial arts, Anishinaabe social dances and teachings about Ojibwe songs, Ojibwe round dance, snake dance, basketball, volleyball, and more.
Please register early to avoid disappointment! The last 2 camps in Moose Factory and Akwesasne reached full capacity and folks had to be turned away.
