Muskeg Lake Cree Nation has a rich history of elite athleticism, even when our membership has been small. Sports have always helped bring our community together, giving us opportunities to showcase Muskeg Lake in fastball, soccer and hockey. Tight, close and supportive, we’ve shown we can do a lot with a few people.
We encourage excellence in sports with our children by designating funds exclusively for youth engagement in sports. Recreational activities include cultural events—powwows and cultural camps—as well as traditional activities—tipi building, traditional medicines, hand games and drumming.
Recreational programming for adults and seniors in the community is organized by our Recreation department.
The foundation of our youth recreation program is a scholarship program that offers financial support and encourages personal growth in fitness, sportsmanship and also responsibility.
Youth Recreation Scholarship funding is available for youth members of Muskeg Lake who live anywhere in the world. A fundraising component of the program encourages personal investment and responsibility.
