TSAG started an Environmental Youth Camp (EYC) in 2008 to get students out of the classroom and into nature to learn about their surrounding environment, inspire stewardship and career choices in science and technology, and at the same time, foster a sense of adventure and passion for the outdoors. EYC is FREE for First Nation youth in Alberta and is worth 2 high school credits. EYC is hosted at the Centre for Outdoor Education (COE) near Nordegg, Alberta. Certified outdoor adventure guides took the youth on a Columbia Icefields tour, day hikes, rock climbing, kayaking, and whitewater rafting!
The 2017 Environmental Youth Camp will is taking place on August 20-25th, 2017 and is open to Alberta First Nations Students in grades 9-12. The application deadline is June 30th, 2017.
