COVID-19 UPDATES

Certain Chickasaw Nation programs, services and offices have been modified to continue to serve while also observing the best possible safety protocols. Visit the COVID-19 INFORMATION page for the latest updates and information. We will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses.

Chickasaw Nation Residents - These services are available only within the Chickasaw Nation's boundaries.

Chickasaws At-Large - These services are available only outside the Chickasaw Nation's boundaries.

All Service Areas (Both) - These services are available both within and outside the Chickasaw Nation's boundaries.

The Chickasaw Nation 2022 summer youth camps and clinic season is designed to offer safe and healthy recreational experiences. A selection of in-person youth day camps and clinics provide responsible distancing and proper safety protocols.

Due to the fluid times we are facing during the pandemic, camps and clinics are subject to change. Please check back frequently for updates on the 2022 camp list. We will follow the most up-to-date CDC guidelines to ensure each camp and clinic remains safe for both students and staff. Hand sanitizer, face masks, alcohol wipes and responsible distancing markings will be on-site. We look forward to this season and hope to be back with all camps, clinics and academies in 2023!
