Cultural Camp

Wa-Say Healing Centre offers Cultural Camps as immersive experiences aimed at facilitating learning and healing through the exploration of Indigenous culture, values, and land-based knowledge. These camps provide participants, whether they are on a journey of learning or healing, with unique opportunities to engage with Indigenous traditions, teachings, and practices in a hands-on and experiential way. 

At the Cultural Camps, participants are immersed in Indigenous culture through various activities, such as traditional ceremonies, storytelling, craft-making, and land-based teachings. Elders and knowledge keepers often lead these activities, sharing their wisdom and insights with the group. Through these interactions, participants gain a deeper understanding of Indigenous worldviews, values, and spiritual beliefs. 

Moreover, Cultural Camps often include activities that foster a connection to the land and nature, incorporating teachings on traditional ecological knowledge, plant identification, and land stewardship practices. Participants have the chance to engage in activities like guided nature walks, harvesting traditional medicines, and learning about the importance of reciprocity and respect for the land. 

Participating in Cultural Camps at Wa-Say Healing Centre offers individuals a holistic approach to learning and healing by integrating cultural teachings with experiential activities in a supportive and nurturing environment. By immersing themselves in Indigenous culture and land-based knowledge, participants not only gain valuable insights and skills but also develop a deeper appreciation for the interconnectedness of all living beings and the importance of preserving Indigenous traditions for future generations.
