2015 Camp Details
The 19th Annual NativeVision Sports and Life Skills camp was held in Shiprock, NM at Shiprock High School from June 9-11, 2015. The camp was hosted by the Navajo Tribe. More than 600 youth from 15 tribes, 60 professional and collegiate athletes and coaches and hundreds of Native community members attended—free of charge. Approximately 1000 community members from the host tribe took part in camp activities.
At the camp professional volunteer athletes conducted sports clinics in football, lacrosse, soccer, basketball, volleyball and track. The athlete-mentors also participated in break-out sessions that promoted self-esteem, discipline, teamwork and the importance of completing one’s education. In addition, Johns Hopkins coordinated workshops to promote youth expression. These included:
The Navajo Tribe organized cultural events and community feasts to promote Native pride and traditional strengths for camp participants. More than 200 local volunteers assisted with the efforts. In addition, NativeVision awarded two $5000 scholarships to Native students entering college. Scholarship recipients were selected through a competitive narrative application and review process administered by the Center.
We will be forever grateful to the people of the Navajo Tribe and Shiprock High School for being gracious hosts.
