Join the Summer Work Party!


A Summer Camp style sign that reads: Summer Work Party June 2 to 23rd Wet'suwet'en Territories This year’s Summer Camp is focusing on fire safety prep and making small but crucial safety improvements around camp. The Healing Centre helps Wet'suwet'en people recover from trauma & substances by connecting to their land. You can support them in their work by volunteering this summer. Work hard. Sleep under the stars. Swim in the river. Eat great food. Make new friends!

Seen the film, Yintah, and want to know how you can help?  Come to Camp!

It’s a gorgeous time of year on the Yintah. The Unist’ot’en clan invite hard working folks to join us from June 2th to 23rd for our annual June Work Party!

Come for a minimum of 1 week, and help support the Unist’ot’en in our mandate to Heal the People and Heal the Land! This year we’re working on fire preparedness and safety and making other important adjustments to camp to increase efficiency and safety. The Unist’ot’en Healing Centre has been operating at a steady pace with regular and essential programming for Wet’suwet’en people seeking healing from substance abuse and the effects of colonization. We had five transformative and moving healing camps this winter and could really use your help getting ready for our summer season.

Fallers, cooks, chainsaw operators, medics, skilled trades folk, fantastic cleaners, and others just willing to get their hands dirty and work in solidarity with the Unist’ot’en on our sovereign territory are welcome.  Not sure if you have the right skill set? You might be surprised!  Get in touch with us and see.

Enjoy three scrumptious meals a day, meet rad people, camp under the stars or in the cozy bunkhouse, drink straight from the Wedzin Kwa, and jump in her cold flowing water to escape the midday heat. Know that though the world is on fire right now, you are doing something to get in the way of climate change and colonization. Where else is just washing dishes revolutionary?

Before applying to come to camp, we ask you to read the preparing for your visit page on our website and pay particular attention to the consent guidelines and guidelines for behaviour. Behaviour going against our guidelines will not be tolerated.

There is little to no risk of arrest at this time at camp. Although industry continue to try to do their dirty work, the Unist’ot’en are still actively running programming and cultural camps on our territory for Wet’suwet’en people, and invite you to join us in supporting this form of healing revolution.
