(a working tittle)
Join Western region youth and advisors for an amazing weekend in Calgary filled with community building, touch groups, worships and of course games galore! (including circle games, board games, card games and of course Wink!) Through theme of games we’ll have some serious fun while contemplating what games can teach us about rules, winning & losing and what to do when you keep having to ‘go fish’.
This Con happens concurrently with the Western Regional Fall Gathering
, so we’ll take part in some multigen magic as well. Youth and advisors will join the InGathering and Reception on the Friday evening, and on Saturday we’ll have the traditional Multigenerational Dinner and Coffee House. As well on Saturday,
to continue our work of learning about truth and reconciliation with indigenous peoples, all Con participants will have the opportunity to join with the adults and children to experience the Kairos Blanket Exercise.
