Another critical aspect of health is recreation. In a recent CCP meeting with youth, a central topic of discussion was a lack of activities for youth on reserve. The young participants saw things like improvements to the baseball diamond and basketball court, a new youth centre, and walking and cycling trails as a way to get youth involved in more positive activities on reserve. Currently our on-reserve recreation facilities include the gymnasium and playing field at the Nc’tetkwu Band School, and a campground at Gwen Lake. However, the gymnasium has limited hours and the field and campground are in need of upgrading.
We are asking youth to come forward with feedback of what visions they have for themselves and future generations of Coldwater Youth.
