It was a privilege to host this past year's Recreation Gathering on the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation. Thank you to the City of Dawson and Yukon Government's Sport & Recreation Branch for your support. Thank you also to the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture and the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Youth Centre for the space to host this event.
More than 39 recreation practitioners from 11 Yukon communities and three guests from B.C. attended the 2022 Recreation Gathering. A special shout-out goes to the guest presenters who made this event an enriching experience for all.
As promised, the following are some of the resources shared during the conference and breakout group presentations. We hope that these will be a refresher and reference tool for the fascinating concepts covered at the Recreation Gathering.
