WHITEHORSE, YT—Yukon University is introducing two changes to the registration process for Youth Moving Mountains Summer Camps to ensure greater inclusion of Indigenous youth in Whitehorse.
The camps are popular and usually fill up rapidly once online registration opens, sometimes within minutes. Places are secured by immediate payment via credit card.
Going forward, registration will be a staggered process. Starting March 16, Indigenous families (including parents or caregivers) will be able to access advanced registration online or via phone. Camp staff will be available between 9am and 4pm each weekday to support those wishing to register youth in the camps. Then, on March 23, general online registration will proceed for the remaining available spots in each camp.
For all youth, payment will no longer be required at registration. Parents and caregivers will have until May 27 to seek and receive financial support for their child to attend camps.
