American Indian Youth Wellness Camp
JOIN US TODAY.
Please support the 2019 American Indian Youth Wellness Camp. This week-long residential wellness program specifically targets American Indian youth.
THE AMERICAN INDIAN YOUTH WELLNESS CAMP
At camp, youth are taught about healthy eating habits, how to make exercise fun, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Our camp integrates American Indian values and culture and this reinforces the holistic view of health.
SOME CALL IT CAMP. We call it transformation.
Personal check-ins monitor each youth’s progress. With innovative technology, we collect health information which is shared with each participant. We also use this information to inform and improve the content of the camp programming.
HONORING TRADITION, PROMOTING HEALTH.
You can support: A Day at Camp
The sun rises, poking light through cabin windows. Inside, 50 eager children wake to a new and promising day. A different tribe begins each morning by leading our daily reflection, then we take our daily walk and have breakfast. From there, students cycle through a collection of activities and lessons. They learn traditional native games, do Zumba and Tai Chi, dance, swim, practice arts and crafts and more. They learn to read food labels, about energy in and energy out, about My Plate, and how to plant their own seeds. After a day of activity, learning and fun, it’s off to bed for a busy tomorrow!
OUR VISION ~ SECURE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUTH
Join us! Together we'll create a brighter and healthier future for American Indian kids.
