The Prairie Rose Project Summer Youth camp is going into its second year of teaching Native students how to have fun learning. The camp takes place on the campus of United Tribes from July 25-29. It's free and open to Native American students 13-14 years old living on reservations.
Student activities will focus on the areas of science, technology, recreation, engineering, art, and math (STREAM). Several field trips are planned for each category. Last year students who attended went to the Impact Gallery in downtown Bismarck to learn more about art by working with air brush painting and calligraphy; they also toured the State Capitol building, the North Dakota Heritage Center. and the Northern Plains reserach lab. Students also went geo-caching; built terrariums and lego robotics.
Similar trips are planned for this year, including a return trip to Raging Rivers Water Park in Mandan.
Registration and application are now being accepted until spots are filled. This is a first-come, first-serve basis. Parrents are encouraged to get their child registered as soon as possible to ensure a spot at camp. The camp takes place on the campus of United Tribes from July 25-29. Campers will arrive on campus Sunday evening, July 24, and depart at 1 PM on Friday, July 29. Students will stay in the dorms at UTTC with all meals provided.
