Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge with gratitude the traditional territory upon which we live, work, and camp. Camp Kintail is on the traditional territory of the Saugeen First Nation.  Treaty 45 1/2 of 1836 covers the area of Camp Kintail. We acknowledge this territory’s significance for the Indigenous peoples who lived, and continue to live, upon it and whose practices and spiritualities were tied to the land and continue to develop in relationship to the territory and its other inhabitants today.

We acknowledge that The Presbyterian Church in Canada has been a part of the residential school system.  Camp Kintail, with the Presbyterian Church, seeks a new relationship with the First Nations of this land, one based in honour and deep respect.
