Environmental Camp

Students, ages eight to 12, get a behind-the-scenes look at many facilities used to maintain our environment that go unseen by the typical citizen and learn about on-going conservation efforts at the local, state and national levels.

The Environmental Camp features non-traditional classroom settings and hands-on instruction from professionals in environmental fields. Field trips to local and state facilities give campers an insider’s look at environmental topics and problems faced today and what is being done to address them.

The camp will focus on educating students about the protection of human health and the natural environment from pollution and other environmental hazards. Educational and career opportunities in the fields of environmental health and protection will also be explored.

Topics covered by the camp will include air pollution, communicable diseases, water pollution, waste management, food hygiene, occupational safety and how these topics affect Chickasaws and other citizens. Cultural components of this camp include participating in stomp dances, learning important Chickasaw stories, language and exploring traditional concepts and history of environmental stewardship of Native Americans.

Eligibility:

  • Native Americans ages eight to 12, Chickasaw preference
