Kë Gbéshmen

Our youth summer camp is called Kë Gbéshmen, which means "let's camp."

Each summer Native American youth from Kindergarten to 12th grade can enjoy a summer youth culture camp experience at the Pokagon Band's Rodgers Lake campground. The focus of the camp is language, culture, spirituality, traditional ecological knowledge, Neshnabe history, and education. Many of the camp activities are built around cultural teachings and language lessons, but also include many favorite conventional camp activities.
