What is there to do?

The history, culture and nations that make up Canada are fascinating, so why not introduce the kids to it all!

The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre is filled with amazing learning experiences for the whole family. 

It was set up by the Squamish Nation, and the Lil'wat Nation, who have actually coexisted respectfully for thousands of years. These nations have thrived on the land, and have built an incredible relationship with the world around them.

As the modern world grew, they adapted but held onto their traditions, and now they have come together to create this amazing cultural centre to preserve their cultures, and introduce them to families just like you!

The site of the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre is just as important, because they have left the forest area nearby virtually untouched. That's what we like to hear!

The centre always has featured exhibits that can teach you all about aspects of the cultures. They often rotate so you can see something new each time you return!

From traditions, tattoos, animals and the relationship between humans and the world...there is always something amazing to immerse yourselves in !

Over summer, the team at the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre hold fun BBQs on Tuesday evenings, so why not head on down and enjoy the flavors as you enjoy the tour of the site!

Sometimes the centre has artists in residence too, which means that you can see these masterpieces being created right in front of you, and learn why they are doing what they do!

An incredible experience surrounding something so important to the Canadian history. A fascinating family experience!
