Event Details

Looking for a unique camp experience for your children this summer that’s both exciting and educational?

The Institute for American Indian Studies will be offering six weeks of camp focused on lifeways and lessons of Native Peoples!  Join experienced educators and camp staff on a journey through one, or several, of the themed weeks!

Each week, while hiking in the woods, playing games, doing crafts, and making friends, campers will work together to complete a group project.  By doing so, campers will not only learn valuable life skills, but will also have a positive impact on future visitors, students, and campers.

July 29 – August 2

How long do you think you could survive outside without access to modern technology?  Perhaps you want to be prepared for hiking, camping, and other outdoor adventures.  If so, sign up for this week’s camp session and practice basic outdoor living skills, such as knot tying, navigation, and safe use of fire in an outdoor setting.  Explore different techniques from the past and the present that people use when they need to survive in woodland environment with changing weather.
