A mental health promotion project for Mi’kmaq and Maliseet youth in Elsipogtog (Big Cove) First Nation in New Brunswick. It is a NAYSPS project that consists of culture camps for youth 16-18 to learn their culture, language and traditions from Elders and other resource people, and also personal wellness and healing strategies. The camp has been very successful and was adapted into a community-run event after Big Cove lost NAYSPS funding
