Language Camp

Shackan Language camp was fabulous, thank you everyone who came & for all your planning and hard work to make this happen! Teachers for coming out and teaching, members, guests, youth and elder’s thank you for attending and making this language camp a great success!! Here are a few testimonials from some of the attendees…

“My Friend Gloria & I took the language camp both days at Chataway Lake Resort. We had a wonderful time, we sure had fun being with & talking with NłeʔKepmxcin speakers. We enjoyed hearing their stories & learning from them. Kʷukʷscemx ʷ  to the Shackan Band, Debra Manuel & everyone who attended the language camp, I look forward to next year!" All My Relations - Rena Sam 

"Our first language camp - what fun! Cold but we learned lots. My husband, Lee & I would practice the words in bed (no shenanigans) all covered up trying to keep warm. It was good opportunity to learn & I think it helped being on the land. It just felt 'right'. Thank you for organizing such an educational, learning activity! Looking forward to the language conference in November" - Linda Epps

"I really enjoyed it, lots of laughter was shared. I am already looking forward to next year & would recommend it to everyone, it was so much fun!" - Jimmy Toodlican
