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 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 5 – August 9

How do you use technology in your daily life?  In today’s Digital Age, with access to computers, cell phones, electricity, it is pretty easy to think that technology of the past was simple.  In fact, people of the past figured out creative ways to move around, construct shelter, find food, and make tools that allowed them to thrive in their surroundings.  In this week’s session, campers will practice survival methods and traditional skills that people in this area have been using for thousands of years.

When: Monday – Friday 9:00am – 3:00pm; Extended Camp Options 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.
