USET Tribal Climate Resilience Camp

July 10 - July 15

USET will follow Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Tribal, federal, and state public health guidelines and updates regarding COVID 19. In order to ensure the safety of Tribal Nation citizens, our staff, and our partners we are limiting in-person participation to 30 participants and 20 support staff (50 total). Additional participants may be accommodated in an online format.

The USET Tribal Climate Resilience Camp (the Program) will support teams of Tribal Leaders, climate change coordinators, planners, and program managers to build skills, gather information, and develop Tribal policies and plans needed for Tribal Nations to address climate change impacts.

There is no fee for registration. Meals and lodging for Tribal Nation teams at the Schoodic Institute will be covered by the Program. Tribal Nation teams, however, are responsible for covering all travel costs getting to and from the event (including but not limited to airfare, airport parking, mileage, per diem, or other expenses on travel days). The Program will provide upon request, shuttle transportation from the Bangor International Airport to and from the camp venue. However, car rental costs will not be covered by the Program and will be the responsibility of the participants.

Registration is now open. Information is available on the Camp webpage.

COVID Protocols:

Based on USET’s COVID-19 Meeting Protocols for USET-sponsored Events, proof of vaccination is currently required for all participants at in-person events.
USET is committed to the overall safety and well-being of all of its meeting attendees. Recognizing the ongoing evolving realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, any in-person meeting/event plans will be executed in accordance with recommended public health protocols. As a reminder, the USET Tribal Epidemiology Center (TEC), a recognized public health authority, will ultimately provide USET with guidance and recommendations about any in-person USET meeting/event plans to ensure that our actions are in the best interests of the USET/USET SPF organization, its membership, and meeting attendees. Based on the USET TEC’s decision, it may be required to shift the event from in-person/hybrid to fully virtual and should this action be taken, proper notice will be provided.
