Three days of skills, strategies, games and camping on the coast. Crucial training for water protectors, land defenders, anti-racist organizers and social change advocates.
What's included: Shuttle van from Victoria, camping, RV parking, firewood, an outdoor kitchen, water, hydro, wifi, coffee, tea, and snacks. Spare tents and sleeping bags are available.
The camp is on private property in a wildlife sanctuary near Port Renfrew, an ocean-side community on unceded Pacheedaht Nation territory two hours west of Victoria. The town has a small grocery store, two restaurants, and many cabins, hotels, and B & Bs but no gas station, medical centre or urban amenities.
Join the volunteer team: Set-up is Friday, September 1 and take-down is Tuesday, September 5. Volunteers will also help with parking, coffee, snacks, and firewood.
Suggested donation: Sliding scale, $50 to $75. Donate now.
No experience necessary. Kids are welcome. The camp is partially wheelchair accessible. The House of Solidarity is a safer space for people of all nationalities, beliefs, genders, races, and classes. Due to wildlife concerns, pets are not allowed in the wildlife sanctuary.
