Experience BC First Nations Culture

Cheakamus Centre is proud to facilitate a range of engaging indigenous educational experiences rooted in Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) culture. A variety of indigenous cultural programs for students and adults are available to enhance the experience in Skwxwú7mesh territory.

Offerings range from the provincially recognized Skw'une-was Program for Grade 3 to 4 students, to our Overnight Indigenous Cultural Program for Grade 5 to 12 students, to educator workshops for adult groups. All programs are centered around sharing the beauty, depth and vibrancy of Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) First Nation culture in fun, interactive and engaging ways.
