The Institute for American Indian Studies' Summer Camp

The Institute for American Indian Studies is offering six weeks of full-day summer camp for children ages 5-12, focusing on the life-ways and lessons of Native Peoples. Join experienced educators and camp staff on a journey through one or several themes: Digging Detectives, Eating with the Seasons, Crafty Creations, Woodland Survival, Not So Primitive Technology, and Forest and River Ecology. Each week while hiking in the woods, playing games, 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. Have your children practice team-building skills, increase their knowledge of nature, and connect with a culture that has more than 10,000 years of history in the area!
