Each summer, the UBC Division of Health Care Communication, in partnership with Fraser Valley Aboriginal Child and Family Services Society (FVACFSS, Xyolhemeylth) in Chilliwack, offers learning opportunities for health professional students to attend overnight camps led by members of the Aboriginal community.
Placements are for one of the 3-day or 4-day summer camps or youth day camps which aim to teach about Aboriginal traditions and values.
At the camps, you will interact with the community, including elders, and participate in cultural events. This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the unique culture of the Stó:lō peoples.
Youth Day: August 13, 2013Canyon Camp: August 19-21, 2013
If you are a health professional student and you are interested, contact Cathy Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
Approximately 25 students in total can be accepted, accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis (priority will also go to ensuring various professions are represented).
"Fraser Valley Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society (FVACFSS) provides culturally appropriate and holistic services through prevention, community development and child welfare programs to Aboriginal children, youth and their families residing on and off reserve communities throughout the Fraser Valley.
FVACFSS operates with a central office located in Chilliwack and regional offices in Abbotsford, Agassiz, Langley and Mission."
