Since 2005, the CEDAR Outreach and Mentorship Program has supported scientific learning for Indigenous youth on the UBC Vancouver Campus. CEDAR stands for “Cross-cultural Education through Demonstration, Activity, and Recreation.” The aim of CEDAR has been to provide fun learning opportunities in a culturally relevant context that help Indigenous youth to develop a comfortable relationship with the UBC Campus, Faculty, and the UBC Indigenous community. In the many years that CEDAR has been running, hundreds of Indigenous youth have come to the Musqueam campus, with several participants returning as students in a variety of degree programs.
Cedar Camp Testimonials
“I would like to come back to CEDAR camp because of the fun and different things we explore and the fun and nice people I met. The number one thing I enjoyed was exploring our home and nature.”
