Come together at Shakat Tun Retreat Centre
Sometimes you just need to get away from the everyday. And there’s good reason. When you are close to the land and water, relationships change. The land and water are lend themselves to learning and natural healing. That’s why people come to Shakat Tun.
At Shakat Tun Retreat Centre, we have hosted:
- Strategic Planning retreats and other meetings
- Wellness Programs and Healing Camps
- Cultural Revitalization Events and Activities
- Educational Workshops
- Group Tours
- Traditional Knowledge Workshops
- Student and Youth Educational Tours
We will help you design the group event that works for you.
You can bring your own facilitators or workshop instructors, or you can use ours.
We also offer a variety of activities, including:
- Storytelling around the campfire
- Guided walks/hikes
- Fishing and ice fishing (setting the fishnet and cutting fish)
- Medicine walks
- Traditional tool making
- Dream catcher making
- Medicine bag making
- Moose hide tanning
- Drum making
- Flightseeing, and
- Show and tell of cultural artifacts
We operate year-round. In the summer, the glistening midnight sun and fresh air gives us long days and boosts of energy. Winters in Yukon can be a magical display of dancing Northern lights, fresh fallen snow and, surprisingly, rather comfortable temperatures. Of course, every now and then the mercury can drop to -30c or colder. However, when you’re dressed for the cold and you become enveloped by the silence and beauty of sun-kissed, snow covered mountains, you’ll fall in love with winter at Shakat Tun.
