It's not a matter of holding on to the past it's a matter of holding on to the future - Guujaaw

Since 1978, Haida Gwaii Rediscovery has operated a unique wilderness youth camp at beautiful T’aalan Stl’ang (Lepas Bay), The Beach that has Everything,  on the northwest Coast of Haida Gwaii. 

“I was lucky to be a young president of Rediscovery…going to the place of your ancestors is a deeply emotional experience…getting a sense of how your ancestors lived… so much beauty in the land. It’s a lifelong memory I’ll be able to share with children. It’s important to take time to reconnect with the places and stories.”

 - Dr. Evan Adams, Aboriginal Actor & Physician

Clearly, we need a renewed sense of the earth as home; belonging to the land, connected to all other living things. Youngsters today have few if any opportunities to experience the enormity and beauty of the wilderness – Rediscovery offers them that.”

 - Dr. David Suzuki, Scientist, and Broadcaster
