Summer Camps

Summer Camps

Summer Camps at IAIS are the way summer should be! We believe that learning is fun and develop our summer programs to teach campers about various American Indian cultures through exciting activities, crafts and stories. We make full use of our land with hikes, tracking excursions, water play and outdoor games. Our Counselors are capable and caring individuals with a broad range of knowledge: art; woodland survival skills; music; herbology; drama; the list goes on! Our dedicated and experienced Counselors are the key to making our camps a success every year.

What Should Campers Bring?
All materials necessary for the day's activities will be provided by IAIS. However, there are still things that campers should bring with them every day...

Even if there is inclement weather in the morning, we still recommend packing swimsuits and towels. Often, the weather will clear up enough to permit water play by the afternoon. Please place camper's name on everything!

See you this summer!
