April/May 2024

When the sun comes out it’s time for us to get out of the school and onto the land. This spring we’ve been brushing up on our Zombie Apocalypse Survival Skills with Daryle, making shelters and fires and learning how to become more confident and self-reliant. We also did an amazing fishing workshop with Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, although sadly we went home empty-handed. Another highlight was our canoeing trip at Comox Lake put on by the kind folks at Lake Park Society. We faced gale-force winds and choppy seas but somehow emerged victorious.

There’s never a dull moment at Nala’atsi, and the last few months have gone by so quickly! Some highlights in December were a cedar weaving workshop with Avis Nalaga O’Brien, Bowling in Campbell River, and our annual Nala’atsi Fudge & Smudge with Daryle Mills (not to mention an appearance by Santa’s Little Helper, our very own Emmylou). January and February saw us flying around on trampolines at Airhouse in Nanaimo and learning to build fires from scratch during Daryle’s Zombie Apocalypse Survival Training. We also became archeologists for the day at the Campbell River Museum while participating in their ‘Stones, Bones, & Middens’ workshop.
