This summer JOM held a summer culture camp for Native youth. Overall, the culture camp was amazing and the kids had a blast. The SEARHC Grant received earlier in the year helped make this happen and provided funds for the purchase of equipment for future camps. Participants made headbands, paddles, and rattles during the camp.
Headstart Fish Camp was a lot of fun and the kids have been loved it. They made paper fish, headbands and have been learning about Tlingit culture. They went on a field trip to the Hatchery and dissected a salmon to learn about fish biology. At the end of the camp they sampled cultural foods.
We had a really successful Haunted House Fundraiser! Thanks to everyone who participated in making this happen and thank you to everyone who came to our Haunted House. The money raised from this event will be crucial to the future funding of JOM events.
