A summer day camp for children and youth going into grades 1-6 hosted on campus where youth participate in activities that combine Indigenous knowledge with other departments at the University of Winnipeg such as Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science and Biology.

Indigenous knowledge keepers share traditional knowledge about many topics such as traditional medicines, star teachings, creation stories, traditional games, feasting ceremonies, water storage and more. Activities also include hands-on experiments in labs on campus, math lessons, 3D printing, coding, dissections, as well as weekly field trips.
