Part 1: Camp

From August 12 to 16, 2019, 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 Squamish First Nation knowledge perspectives. In the evenings, you’ll learn the hard skills needed to be a successful conservation leader and community organizer from some of the best organizers in the field. Take advantage of the incredible network of the David Suzuki Foundation and propel yourself into taking the action the world needs to combat climate change and reform a relationship of reciprocity with mother earth.

Participants will leave camp empowered, connected and equipped to champion a healthy Howe Sound.

Part 2: Volunteer

Participants apply their skills and knowledge after camp through a part-time volunteer placement 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 about local developments.

Participants will leave Camp Suzuki: Leadership Camp as ambassadors with a toolkit for leading change in their community’s environmental and social movements — along with tried and tested experience in the field.
