Changes to Jackson Lake Land-Based Healing Camp

The Jackson Lake Healing Camp is currently closed for renovations. As a result, the annual four-week women’s healing camp will not take place this year.

The spring closure of the camp has created an opportunity: as you may be aware, Kwanlin Dün First Nation began a comprehensive evaluation of its Spiritual & Mental wellness programs and services in late 2018. Although the evaluation report is not yet complete, we have taken preliminary feedback into consideration to try some new approaches in 2019-20. 

KDFN is excited to announce its commitment to pilot alternative land-based healing models for the upcoming year. This includes the introduction of new programs to promote wellness and healing that were suggested as part of our ongoing evaluation.

The dates for upcoming Land-Based Healing Camps are as follows:

•  Women’s Reunion Retreats: July 29 – August 3, 2019
•  Family Camps NEW DATES: September 20 - 22
•  Men’s Four-Week Retreat: October 3 – 30, 2019
•  Youth and Elder Programming in Spring 2020 (stay tuned to our website for more details in November 2019)

Kwanlin Dün First Nation would like to thank everyone for their support and patience while we work to develop the best possible land-based healing camps for Yukon citizens. Please contact the Health Centre at (867) 668-7289 for more information.
