Sacred Earth Camp has run for three summers with support from the Anglican Foundation, the Diocese of New Westminster, the Gish Peacemaker Fund and many individuals and parishes. Young people from diverse backgrounds have gathered for canoeing, conservation biology, native plant identification, wildcrafting, community-building and lots of fun.
Sacred Earth Camp 2018 took place at Southlands Heritage Farm in Vancouver, and Sycamore Commons, a permaculture project in Powell River BC. Please click here for a full report on the 2018 camp.
