Where It All Happens

During our summer program, youth live, learn, and work out of the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station at the southern boundary of Torngat Mountains National Park in the Labrador Inuit homeland of Nunatsiavut.

The Base Camp, which is managed and run by the Nunatsiavut Group of Companies, transforms the shores of kangidluasuk (St. John’s Harbour) into a unique gathering place each summer; a place where researchers, international tourists, elders, Inuit leaders, artists, musicians, Parks Canada staff and youth share, teach, and learn together.
