Hivernant: A Métis Winter Camp Experience
March 22-25, 2018, at Fort William Historic Park in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The Métis Nation of Ontario is holding a Winter Culture Camp on March 22-25, 2018 at the Fort William Historical Park in Thunder Bay.
The winter camp will be approximately 3 days in duration, will be land-based, will be in sync with the winter season and will engage Métis youth in learning Métis culture and way of life. The age group targeted is the same as the MNO March Break Camp (youth in Grades 10, 11, 12).
The cultural winter camp will include aspects of Métis history, way of life and culture and will include engaging outdoor activities. This is particularly important as many Métis youth seek to connect with their Métis culture and heritage. The cultural winter camp will engage youth through interactions with Métis knowledge holders, MNO staff and facilitators in events/activities that will span the duration of the camp.
