Indigenous Summer Scholars & Leadership Camps


UBC Okanagan's Aboriginal Programs & Services currently hosts two summer camps for aboriginal youth, Indigenous Summer Scholar Camp (ages 12-14) and Indigenous Summer Leadership Camp (ages 15-17).  These integrated programs aim at providing the next generation of Aboriginal leaders with the opportunity to become part of the university experience. The goal of these camps is to help build the students' interests in higher education and their ability to act as leaders in their community and schools. Each of these programs are designed in a holistic way that incorporates physical, mental, social, and cultural programming.

Indigenous Summer Scholars Camp and Indigenous Summer Leadership Camp are free programs which include all food, accommodations, events and programming. However, the cost of travel to and from these camps are NOT covered.

The program promotes interest in health and science programs through firsthand experience at the University of British Columbia. Great opportunities to meet new friends, eat great food, connect with Elders and role models, and enjoy fun, laughter and learning. Students who are First Nations, Inuit or M├ętis are able to apply for either session.
