Culture Camp provides an opportunity each summer for tribal youth to learn traditional practices in a nurturing, fun, and culturally-integrated environment alongside healthy and supportive adults, culture bearers, elders, and tribal community members. Culture Camps includes traditional singing and dancing, story-telling, hiking and swimming, fish preparation and smoking, language learning, drum-making, weaving, and instruction in traditional knowledge of the environment, team-building, and youth leadership development.
Members of the community are invited to attend Evening Family Nights to work on projects with Native Arts Instructor Debbie McLavey. Family Craft Nights may include Button Robes, Ravenstail, beading projects, moccasins, singing Haida songs and weaving.
