As summer approaches, we are gearing up for Summer Camps here at UBCO! 

Please find below and attached information about the 2017 Indigenous Summer Scholars & Leadership Camps, two FREE overnight programs that we offer each summer. 

Through workshops and programming on and off campus, we aspire that youth will be exposed to various personal, social, cultural and academic developmental activities. We’d love if you shared this opportunity and the attached poster with the Indigenous youth in your sphere of influence. 


Indigenous Summer Leadership Camp (ISLC): 

UBC Okanagan’s Aboriginal Programs & Services invites Indigenous youth aged 15-17 to apply to the 3 rd annual Indigenous Summer Leadership Camp July 9-14, 2017 

Indigenous Summer Scholars Camp (ISSC): 

UBC Okanagan’s Aboriginal Programs & Services invites Indigenous youth aged 12-14 to apply to the 5 th annual Indigenous Summer Scholars Camp 
July 16-21, 2017 

This holistic learning experiences of both camps are designed to build awareness about opportunities in higher education for Indigenous youth through interactive workshops that incorporate physical, mental, social, and cultural programming. Based on feedback from last year, we are working on improving the programming each year.
