Summer Camp

Muscogee (Creek) Nation youth had the opportunity to attend a summer
camp that lasted for three days. The event took place on the Okmulgee
Career Tech Campus of Oklahoma State University. The camp activities
focused on Creek culture and history. Youth participated in workshops
on art, music, story telling, language, games, crafts and food that are
connected to their Native American culture. One evening the youth and
some adult volunteers held a stomp dance. An active game of stickball
entertained everyone on the second evening of the camp.

The camp concluded with a program provided by the youth. The program
consisted of a traditional Creek story performed by the youth, a
display of their art work and a traditional Creek meal that the youth
helped prepare. It was a memorable experience for everyone that
attended.
