There is no technology, no signal for cell phones and it would be a seasonal camp style setting. An important recommendation given by the established Kokomag Advisory Council set up in November 2017 for the specfic intent of bringing language, culture, teachings, and ceremony to its full restoration.


The mission of the camp is to educate the young generation to work with the land through gardening, harvesting medicines, hunting, fishing and to ensure the knowledge of the people is passed on.

The Kokomag Advisory Council also stressed the importance of learning survival skills in times of climate change. This would include getting to know geography of the land, rivers, lakes, trees, medicinal plants, the animals, fishes, migration patterns, measuring time, anishnabe ways of science, mathematics, seasons and receivng the star, sky and over all land teachings.


Reconnecting the youth with the Elders on the Land offers a combination of cultural and health awareness.
