The films that result from the camp will be featured at a community screening and submitted to the Reel Youth Film Festival, featured on YouTube and the Reel Youth website.

Kamloops is just one of dozens of locales across the country where the free program has operated. Others in B.C. include Prince George, Cortes Island, Fort St. James, Surrey, Ymir and Vancouver, along with others in Ontario, the prairies and the territories.

The first and sixth days will be spent at the Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship Society at 125 Palm St., while days two to five will be spent at a fishing camp in Nlaka’pmaux territory near Lytton.

Food, transportation, camping and film equipment will be provided.
