Message from the Steering Committee
The CATS7 Steering Committee is honoured to host the 7th Canadian Adventure Therapy Symposium, marking 10 years of CATS! The Yukon CATS Steering Committee has chosen to present a conference that models the importance and vitality of deepening connections to self, community and land. With this in mind, the conference has a diversity of presenters from wilderness and cultural engagement experts to the business community.
We are excited to feature a selection of complimentary Yukon experiences hosted by our community outfitters and local businesses, as well as:
September 18th Meet and Greet – Hosted by Lumel Studios, Wandering Bison and Winterlong Brewing Company;
The Yukon’s First Annual Wisdom Keeper Honouring Banquet;
Townhall/World Conversation style session; hosted by BGCY and YOTS- This session will be live streamed and bring together our leaders, our youth, our Elders, Seniors and folks from across the country to engage in a conversation with each other about our challenges, our view of our future and how we all can work together to achieve our shared vision of a healthy Yukon and Canada;
Youth Zone; Hosted by Skookum Jim Friendship Centre, WCK, BGCY and BYTE – The youth zone is currently ‘under development’ so keep your eyes posted for more details soon!
Educators, Traditional Knowledge Keepers, Practitioners, Therapists, Outdoor Professionals, Students, Program Administrators, Social Workers, Counsellors and Youth Workers will all find tremendous value at this event.
In addition to the main event, there will be pre and post event options to facilitate further connection (and fun!) with the Yukon and our people.
All are welcome and we welcome your own expertise viewpoints and voices.
Feel free to contact the Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club of Yukon, Lindsay Cornell, with any questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Margo Talbot is an author, speaker and climber based in Canmore, Alberta. In this keynote presentation, Margo shares “boots on the ground” tools and techniques that brought her from the abyss of addiction and suicidal depression to being a celebrated athlete in the extreme sport of ice climbing.
Presenters from all over Canada and the Yukon are coming together to offer a vibrant range of programming options for CATS 7 registrants.
In addition to the programming and workshop options offered at CATS 7, our community partners are providing a number of exclusive extra-curricular events and adventures.
