Service-Learning Trip to Constance Lake First Nations and Missinaibi River Trip
In Summer 2019 we are excited to partner with Camp IAWAH on a month-long leadership experience - REACH. The REACH program consists of two separate parts with the option of registering for Part A, Part B or Parts A&B.
Part A (July 7-20, 2019) - Service-Learning Trip to Constance Lake First Nations
Part A begins at Camp Norland, our summer basecamp, where participants from Coldwater will meet up with the group from Camp IAWAH (with transport offered from Camp IAWAH). We will then head north, along with members from Bethel Church Kingston, arriving at Constance Lake First Nations where we will spend two weeks learning and serving. The team will spend the first week preparing for their time of service by building relationships, learning from the community of elders, and bonding as a group. The second week will involve serving the children and youth of the community by leading a day camp and youth events alongside community leaders. Camp IAWAH and Bethel Church Kingston are overseeing Part A.
Part B (July 18-August 3, 2019) - Missinaibi River Trip
Part B is an exciting trip on the Missinaibi River - one of the great northern Ontario rivers traditionally used by Canada's First Nations peoples as a main transportation and trade route. The group will put-in on the Missinaibi River in Mattice, ON, and will spend 11 days travelling north to arrive in Moosonee - right on James Bay. From there you will take a train back south to Cochrane, ON where you will be picked up before heading back to end the program at Camp Norland. Coldwater Canada is providing program leadership for Part B.
All registrations for REACH are being handled by Camp IAWAH. For more information, including a pre-trip informational packet, go here: https://iawah.com/youth-development/#year-3-reach
