Elder~Youth Conference, 2011

There is nothing more important to our vision than to provide the Elder~Youth Conference for the children in our community. Our Elder~Youth camp last month was another beautiful gathering. In collaboration with Grandma Aggie's Salmon Gathering, we were once again blessed to host a camp for youth and elders that allowed us to camp out in the Applegate Valley for four days, spending our days providing teachings for the kids, field trips to the lake, doing Ceremony and supporting the vision of the Salmon Ceremony (click "read more" below photos).
