Donate resources needed for American Indian youth aged 10-15 years old to participate in camp. $15 provides a youth with a basketball; $100 provides youth with art supplies; $250 sponsors camp fees for a youth to attend; $500 secures a tribal instructor and mentor; $1,000 buys a laptop computer for use in completing 24-hour dietary recalls; $1,500 provides a student with an opportunity to serve as a Counselor and learn leadership skills; $1,600 buys equipment necessary to perform field-based measures of glucose and cholesterol; $3,000 buys a body composition analyzer. You can help us respond to the needs of at-risk American Indian youth for development of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Your support ensures a great and fun summer experience for youth while learning about healthy eating and the importance of physical activity.

The camp welcomes many types of donations: sports equipment, raincoats, bottled water for use during the camp, items for prizes, art supplies, cameras, gift certificates for shoes or clothing, basketballs, fishing equipment, kites, hygiene products, sunscreen, insect repellent, lip balm, board games, Frisbees, water bottles, and flash lights.
