Creating Cozy Cabins
Energy-efficient retrofits to Cabin #1 complete!
We were pleased to join forces with BCIT School of Construction and the Environment to deliver a pilot “High Performance Tradesperson” course for indigenous students from across BC. For one week in May, students were highly involved in energy-efficient retrofits to Cabin #1. In addition to gaining practical hands-on skills, students learned about Skwxwú7mesh culture in evening workshops. Check out BCIT's Zero Buildings for a Complex World video on the project, and our slideshow highlighting all of the fun!

Help us re-build a legacy for future generations
We need your help!
Please donate now to make this happen. Your donation will ensure school children have a cabin to call home for one of their most anticipated weeks of the year
Breathing new life into old cabins, naturally!
The cabin project is part of a multi-year campus revitalization that began with the construction of the LEED® Platinum BlueShore Financial Environmental Learning Centre in 2012. The well-being, safety and comfort of students and visitors continues to guide campus development and adaptive re-use of buildings. Ensuring best practices in sustainable design and construction, respecting the natural environment, and celebrating Cheakamus Centre’s unique history are key considerations in all campus renewal projects.
