Gibimishkaadimin, which means travelling together by boat, has begun recruiting for its 2020 canoe trip. Indigenous youth, aged 14 to 18 years, who wish to learn about Indigenous issues, enhance their leadership skills for the journey of reconciliation, develop friendships and just have fun, are invited to apply. The trip dates are August 21 to 29, 2020.
This project of reconciliation for youth of The United Church of Canada, invites youth from coast to coast to coast to meet in Toronto, and then travel to Temagami in northeastern Ontario to canoe in a wilderness setting, camp in tents, and cook over open fires. Youth will return to Toronto, and then travel home. If selected, all costs, including travel will be paid for by Gigimishkaadimin. Applications must be received by March 31, 2020.
