VAHS Puberty Rites Day Camp

We are hosting a Puberty Rites day camp from July 25–28 at New Brighton Park! The camp is open to Indigenous youth ages 11–15.

We will have workshops, activities, and ceremonies led by Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and nurses. Meals and snacks are provided.

The camp is open to 20 girls and 20 boys; we support youth who are Two-Spirit, transgender, intersex, and/or non-binary to join the group that is best for their gender and needs.
