Community Youth Justice Camp: CLIA hosted a 3-day youth camp in the summer of 2017. The camp allowed youth (aged 12 - 15) to learn how the justice system works in Prince Edward Island and to become familiar with their legal rights and responsibilities. The participants got to enjoy guest speakers, such as lawyers and human rights officers, to tour the police station, and to have the opportunity to participate in a mock trial and sentencing circle.

Things we did:

  • Heard from various guest speakers about the justice system, our laws, and the legal community;
  • Played a game to better understand the barriers people face when accessing justice;
  • Learned about the Indigenous Justice Program and participated in a mock sentencing circle;
  • Played Youth Justody, a trivia game, to learn about the Youth Criminal Justice Act;
  • Toured the police station and Supreme Court; and
  • Prepared for and conducted a mock trial at the courthouse.

Feedback we received:

  • My daughter “had a great time last week! Thanks for a great experience.”
  • “I just wanted to take a quick minute and let you know what a phenomenal camp this was. Kudos to the whole team for a great production!”
  • "Just wanted to let you know our son loved the camp last week. Good work and thanks."

Thank you to everyone who supported the Camp!
