Kikandaaswiwin Mookiisin Indigenous STEAM Land Camp

KM STEAM Summer Land Camp grads earn academic credits

KM Indigenous STEAM Accredited Summer Land Camp

Want to connect your Indigenous roots to a future career in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)? Want to explore the earth, create new things, make new friends and dream about a future that honours your unique identity and place in the world? Want to earn an interdisciplinary high school credit and Canadore College credit upon successful completion of the KM STEAM Summer Land Camp program?

The camp is open to Indigenous students between ages 14-17 who enjoy fun, hands-on learning projects and activities built around STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) fields. If you’d like to learn more about your Indigenous heritage and culture and discover how traditional teachings are connected to today’s environmental, scientific, technological and creative challenges, this is the camp for you.

Our instructors are all enthusiastic college/university students who have completed the KM STEAM Land Camp Instructor training program. With a wide range of backgrounds, skills, and experiences, they are ready to mentor, engage and inspire! You will also connect with Knowledge Keepers and Elders who bring an Indigenous worldview to activities.

If you successfully complete the KM STEAM Camp, you will earn one interdisciplinary high school credit and one Canadore College credit – this could be a change to make up an academic credit or improve your marks. You will be given a clear outline of course content, projects and activities, expectations and evaluations. This could be the most fun you will ever have while learning on the land!

We would love to hear from you!
