Historically, summer camps have not often approached Indigenous issues in a respectful manner. Camp Maskepetoon, a United Church camp an hour’s drive from Edmonton, would like to change that. One of their goals is to purchase three tipis and build cultural programming around them. The camp will work with Elders and Knowledge Keepers from the Four Nations of Maskwacis to ensure this programming accurately reflects Indigenous worldviews and ways of knowing.
Your Gift will provide a camper with the opportunity to make a meaningful connection with Indigenous culture.
