Update: The deadline has expired. However, we are accepting applications for our waiting list.
Are you 14 to 18 years old?
Would you enjoy a fabulous summer experience from Aug. 21 to 29?
Or, do you have a friend or relative who might benefit from this wonderful week? If so, please investigate further and share the news:
No experience necessary! You will make new friends, learn about another culture and another approach to spirituality. You will learn new skills, gain a new respect for the land and each other, and above all, have a great time!
Gibimishkaadimin is a free youth trip, and is sponsored by the United Church of Canada, and in part by Fairlawn. It’s a week long canoe trip in Temagami for 12 Indigenous youth and 12 non-Indigenous youth who join together to build relationships, leadership skills, and increase their knowledge of Indigenous cultures, histories, spirituality and ways of engaging with the land.
If you are 14 to 18 years old at the time of the canoe trip in August, apply before March 15, 2020, to be eligible. (Non-Indigenous youth should have a connection to the United Church of Canada and live in Toronto or in the southern Ontario region of Shining Waters region 10. Indigenous youth on the trip are from across Canada.)
This is the fourth year of a five-year program. Fairlawn has sent several teens each year, and we are hoping to do the same this summer. We are hoping that you will be interested!
