TRACKS is TRent Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge and Science, a youth program run through the Indigenous Environmental Studies department of Trent University and under the umbrella of the Kawartha World Issues Centre.
TRACKS offers summer camp experiences at Trent University and in First Nations communities during the summer months, as well as community outreach and school outreach activities all year in the Peterborough and surrounding areas. All of our programming is fun, hands-on, experiential, and combines both Indigenous knowledge and scientific principles.
TRACKS September 28th PA Day is open for registration!
Sign up your camper to spend the day with TRACKS learning about all things Autumn! We’ll take a hike through the forest to learn how different forest critters are starting to prepare for the winter and how the woods themselves are going through their own changes. We’ll also visit some gardens on-campus to learning about Indigenous food systems, harvesting methods and why certain plants like to stick together.
It will be a day full of what we do best here at TRACKS, combining science with Indigenous knowledges, and it’s bound to be a great time!
Camp details: Friday, September 28th, 9:00am – 3:00pm, Trent University Campus
