Walking with the Squamish

Since 2015, the David Suzuki Foundation, Ayes Men Men, the Squamish Nation and Camp Fircom have worked together to offer camps on beautiful Chá7elkwnech (Gambier Island) in British Columbia’s Atl’ka7tsem (Howe Sound). Camp Suzuki at Chá7elkwnech is a nature-based summer camp that combines coastal protection training and First Nations education. Regardless of your age, it offers a chance to disconnect from technology and reconnect to nature.

Along with teaching from members of the Squamish nation — including the famed Canoe Family — Camp Suzuki at Chá7elkwnech: Walking with the Squamish will feature seminars from David Suzuki Foundation staff and other skilled educators. This camp is particularly useful to teachers, who can incorporate the Squamish teachings and methods into fulfilling the new provincial curriculum.

Camp Suzuki at Chá7elkwnech: Walking with the Squamish has been cancelled for the 2020 season due to public health restrictions. If you would like to participate Camp Suzuki in August 2021, or have any questions about this amazing program, please contact campsuzuki@davidsuzuki.org.
