American Indian Summer Camp
Welcome to the American Indian Affairs Summer Camp!
The Summer Camp was first established in 2013 as a cooperative effort between American Indian Affairs and the Four Dakota communities of Minnesota. The reason for starting was to give American Indian high school students a chance to visit and experience a university campus, so they may begin envisioning themselves attending. In 2017, just over half of American Indian high school students in Minnesota graduated in four years. Research shows that attending culturally-centered summer camps increases college attendance outcomes for American Indian students. Since then, the camp has opened to any American Indian student entering 9th - 12th grade, and has consistently filled its 40 spots!
