N’’tsaÜw Chu’ Kedts’edán Kù Traditional Camp aims to build a traditional camp on the Porter Creek Secondary School (PCSS) campus, helping the school and the greater community to engage in authentic cultural programming. The camp will build capacity in educators and help students see themselves and their cultural teachings as valued. While other schools have fire pits and outdoor classroom spaces, no other school in Whitehorse has the infrastructure and plan to develop the in-depth cultural programming that PCSS could provide when this traditional camp is complete.
