What People Say About Us
“…Through Rediscovery camps young people are re-connected to the land, culture and their communities… increase understanding and awareness and to build bridges between cultures”.
- Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, 1996, Vol. IV,pg.16-19 & 58: (The Search for Belonging: Perspectives of Youth).
“Clearly we need a renewed sense of earth as home; belonging to the land, connected to all other living things. Youngsters today have few, if any opportunities to experience the enormity and beauty of the wilderness – Rediscovery offers them that.”
- Dr. David Suzuki, Scientist and Broadcaster
“I was lucky to be a young president of Rediscovery…going to the place of your ancestors is a deeply emotional experience…getting a sense of how your ancestors lived… so much beauty in the land. It’s a lifelong memory I’ll be able to share with children. It’s important to take time to reconnect with the places and stories.”
- Dr. Evan Adams, Aboriginal Actor & Physician
” Lots of fun and laughter; I embraced the world family and had an amazing time”
