New and improved summer programs: Now open!

It’s been a full year since the inception of AWAKE and we are proud to offer new summer programs from August through October for youth aged 12-18. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to take a float plane to a remote northern lake and learn traditional hunting and fishing skills. Apply now to save your spot in this exciting camp!

Bringing AWAKE to students

Founder Mel Grandjamb has been busy raising awareness about AWAKE at local schools. During visits to Sister Mary Phillips Elementary School and Father Patrick Mercredi High School, Mel taught local kids the importance of traditional hunting skills while also providing information on the exciting opportunities the camps provide. We look forward to more students applying for upcoming camps.

Update from the trapline

We’ve had a very successful season on the AWAKE trapline. After teaching four participants the skills needed to set the traps, we caught 11 lynx, three mink, five weasels, numerous rabbits, ptarmigan and grouse — and we even almost snared a wolf!
