Kee Tas Kee Now Tribal Council and Northland School Division schools participated in a Career and Technology Studies camp.
From Nov. 28 to Dec. 5, about 50 students slept in cabins at Marten Lakes Wilderness Camp – Northern Lakes College Campus, located off Highway 754 between Slave Lake and Wabasca-Desmarais.
High school credit courses related to carpentry, cosmetology, foods, mechanics and a firearms certification course were provided. Students hand-picked the courses they wanted to take by completing a survey prior to attending camp.
“I definitely see the learning occur. On top of learning, students were being cooperative with one another and developing new relationships because of this camp experience,” said Kelly Parsons, a high school teacher at Little Buffalo School.
