Environmental Camp

2020 Camps, Clinics and Academies Canceled

In this time of an unprecedented health crisis, we are continuing to monitor the spread and effects of the coronavirus. The health and safety of Chickasaws, employees and our community is always our top priority. As this virus has spread to communities across Oklahoma, we are working diligently to make our facilities safe for all. The best way to limit exposure and contain the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid situations where people are gathered and for all to remain safe at home.

To continue to protect our youth, families and staff, all 2020 Chickasaw Nation camps, clinics and academies have been canceled.

Our executive department is continuously monitoring this unprecedented situation. Programs and services will be modified also as needed to safely serve our citizens. Visit Chickasaw.net/COVID19 for the most current information regarding closings, cancellations and program changes.

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.

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.

Transportation is not provided.

Eligibility

  • Native American children, ages 8-12
