NOTES: ​This year’s Native Youth Wellness Warrior Camp will be hosted by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in the beautiful valley of Grand Ronde, Oregon. Youth campers and their adult chaperones will have an opportunity to camp in a tipi or longhouse or the nearby tribal hotel. The purpose of the Native Youth Wellness Warrior Camp is to bring together Native youth and teach them skills and provide them with tools to help them live in balance in the often hectic world we live in. Through ceremony, workshops, activities, movement, traditional games and crafts, horse therapy and more, the young people will experience healing, growth, maturity, a sense of purpose and belonging and tools to help them along their life’s journey.

Youth will meet and network with other Native youth from around the country and work with them in teams to accomplish tasks and goals such as putting up tipi’s, pulling in a canoe, riding horses and more. A special field trip to the Nike World Headquarters will be included and a special evening of song and dance by the Grand Ronde Canoe Family in their Plank House.
