A Call for Program Proposals

Summer 2016 at the Centre

Many have suggested that if Naramata Centre is to succeed in any plan to re-open that providing access to the Centre in the summer of 2016 is very important. In our mid-January board update, we reported that as we consider a future for Naramata Centre, we have decided to invite back past participants and new folks to the Centre from 28 May - 15 October, 2016. There will be opportunities to book self-catered rental accommodations and self-catered space in the campground, and we are excited to test people’s appetite for program experiences at the Centre.

You Are Invited:  A Call For Program Proposals!

Do you have a workshop that’s just waiting to be offered? Are you looking for an inspiring location to lead a program? Have you been yearning to be at Naramata Centre in a leadership capacity? 

The Naramata Centre Society board is looking for contracted program leaders to facilitate dynamic experiences for people of all ages and stages at the Centre, for our upcoming May 28 to October 15, 2016 summer season. Summer 2016 will feature collaborative approaches to programming at the Centre, emphasizing multi-generational and diverse community experiences that relate to spiritual nurture, earth justice, health and well-being, the arts or leadership.  Join us as we test new ground and grow roots for a sustainable future model.

We have extended our deadline and are accepting program proposals for review by the Naramata Centre Board Program Task Group, until March 11, 2016

More about the 'Why' for Summer 2016 

We have three outcomes we are seeking for this coming summer. First, we have not yet made the decision to re-open and want to test the interest and support for doing so by inviting people to come back. Second, we want to generate revenue to cover the costs of maintaining the Centre throughout the year. Third, we want to make space for people to be able to experience spiritual growth and community once again at Naramata. Part of what we all received from Naramata was the opportunity to explore and grow our spiritual connection, which in the past was generated by programs and a strong sense of a safe, caring community.

We are excited as you consider ways that you can join us this summer season, collaboratively creating opportunities that inspire transformation and encourage spiritual nurture at Naramata Centre!

Warm regards,

Naramata Centre Board Program Task Group
