Camp Ne-Schaleche, August 2015 (please check back for more information) 

Ne-Schaleche (formerly the Native American Women & Girls, Men & Boys Conference) in the Lummi language means "my family or my friends".  The camp promotes family wellness, cultural and intergenerational learning. The gathering provides an opportunity to spend time away with family, make new friends and visit with old ones! Workshops and wellness activities focus on the return of a healthier, traditional way of living. 

Over 60 youth, adults and elders from over 8 tribes participate each year! Join families and friends for three days of cultural sharing, Native games, storytelling, art, singing, dancing, swimming and more!

"This camp reminds us of how communities used to live back in the day, it brings good medicine."

"The best part of the conference was all tribal members interacting with each other, young and old."
