About Tipi Camp:

Wilderness Immersion and Self-

Esteem camps for children and teens are the impetus for this non-profit organization where the natural environment encourages opportunities for learning, cooperation and fun.

During the Teen Camp, for ages 13 to 16, councillors lead the group into the Purcell Mountains where they learn to live together in nature. There are countless opportunities for the teens to develop respect for each other and the world they share.

Many children receive bursaries for these programs, allowing the camp to be available to those who need it.

Half of the children and teens who attended the WISE programs in the summer of 2013 were from the Nelson area.

Pledge sheets are a vital aspect to the group’s fundraising efforts.

Those who attend the Day of Yoga and Dance are asked to bring a pledge sheet. Every little bit helps, (no contribution is considered too small), as loonies, toonies and $5 bills add up fast.

You can print a pledge sheet off the Tipi Camp website at tipicamp.bc.ca and sign up sponsors before the event.
