TFN Chief & Council have offered the use of facilities on Bear Island this summer.
Arts Camp is funded through generous donors to this annual camp for children of families living permanently on Bear Island, the Municipality of Temagami or children of families who join us seasonally.
Laura Irvine and Mike Grant will once again join us as the Co-Directors for Arts Camp. Our volunteer supporters for this year’s camp range from community elders through to emerging youth leaders. New volunteers are always welcome to join us in this rewarding experience of bonding our youth with their peers and with the land and traditions of Temagami.
