Bernalillo 2019

23rd NativeVision Sports and Life Skills Camp Report

Over 300 Native American children representing tribes across the Southwest attended this year's NativeVision Sports and Life Skills Camp in Bernalillo, NM on June 13-15, 2019. They participated in one of five sports —basketball, soccer, lacrosse, running, and football - and attended workshops on balance and healthy relationships, team-building, substance abuse prevention and awareness, yoga and design.

We were fortunate to have a team of 14 graphic designers come from the Ralph Lauren company in New York to lead an arts workshop, during which the campers designed beautiful and expressive canvas bags and t-shirts.  We are deeply grateful for Ralph Lauren's continuing support.  As always, we awarded two college scholarships in a special presentation before all the campers.  The recipients were high school seniors selected based on their academic success, leadership and community involvement.  Congratulations to Danielle Sandia of Jemez Pueblo and Peyton Glenn, citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Find out more about Danielle and Peyton on the Scholarship Recipients page on our site.

Thank you to the Bernalillo Community, 5 Sandoval Pueblo Tribes, and Bernalillo High School for being gracious hosts!

We are grateful for our friendship with photographer Ed Cunicelli for many years. Ed has selflessly donated his time to attending camps and taking photographs for the Center for nearly two decades. We will always be grateful for the time, talent and energy he has given to the Center and the NativeVision Program.

Camp photo albums from 2011-2019 are available on Facebook.
