Stewardship Camps

 Children from the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands can attend a week or two of free, summer, Stewardship Camps in Sand Point, St. Paul, and Unalaska. Elders from the area, Native craftsmen, refuge educators and biologists, and community members serve as camp teachers.


Benefits

Activities integrate refuge resources and natural processes with cultural awareness and customary and traditional Native land and resource uses. Each camp is tailored to the needs and wishes of its host local community.

Goal

The goal of each camp is to help youth understand, appreciate, and practice responsible natural resource management and stewardship today and as the decision-makers of tomorrow.

Partners

Alaska Maritime Refuge, local tribes, Native corporations, community governments, the Aleutian Pribilof Island Association (APIA), and community school districts from Sand Point, the Pribilofs, and Unalaska.
