what to expect

We are excited to announce that we have secured the Cowichan Valley Outdoor Education & Conference Centre for the dates June 25, 26, 27, 28 & 29, 2017.

This beautiful facility features a variety of accommodations and recreation activities, and is nestled on the shores of Lake Cowichan. We acknowledge that this takes place on the territories of the Ditidaht, Pacheedaht, Te’mexw, Snuneymuxw, W̱SÁNEĆ, and Hul’qumi’num peoples, and we are extremely grateful to be able to work and gather there.

Participants will arrive in the evening on Sunday, June 25th in time for dinner. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will combine presentations, story telling, art making, nature walks, swimming in the lake, complementary health care, and campfires on the shores of Lake Cowichan. Participants will be taken by shuttle back to Victoria on Thursday morning to begin their journey home.

If you are interested in shaping the content of the symposium, please connect with us to join the Steering Committee or be put on the mailing list to receive updates.

Registration is open to Canadian residents aged 18-32 who are living with HIV, Hepatitis C, or both. There is no cost to participants to attend and travel scholarships are available.20161103_115751
