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 the 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.

August 12 – 16

The forest and rivers of the Eastern Woodlands are teeming with life!  The Native inhabitants recognized long ago that all living things are connected.  In this week’s session, children will play games, complete activities, and create crafts as they learn about our four legged friends (animals), winged friends (birds), and the finned ones (fish), as well as our standing tall, one legged friends (tree).

When: Monday – Friday 9:00am -3:00pm; Extended Camp Option Available with Pre-Registration.

Where: The Institute for American Indian Studies and Steep Rock Association.

Cost: $228 for IAIS Members; $285 for Non-Members; Families with 2 or more children registered get a sibling discount!

Registration forms and Non-Refundable Deposit ($100) due by May 17 to secure your child’s spot.  Full payment due a week before the first day of your child’s camp session.
