Fall Break Camp at the WOLF

The Cultural Resources Department had youth play Catch the Kakaicu (quails) inside the gym.

During the Fall Break in October many of SRPMIC youth flooded the Way Of Life Facility. The camp was hosted by Community Recreational Services (CRS), which now encompasses the following departments: athletics, social programs, youth services, aquatics, boys and girls club, library and WOLF customer service team, with some assistance from Health and Human Services as they provided health and wellness activities and the Cultural Resources Department.

Youth participated in numerous activities like arts and crafts, competitive games with a cultural twist, and even learning how to shoot a bow and arrow.

SRPMIC Elder Royce Manuel teaches the youth all about the bows and arrows he makes by hand as well as how to safely use them.
The attendance numbers at the highest hit 203 for campers, a big increase from all previous camps. “This camp was our fifth camp since we had our first camp last year during the ‘Red for Ed’ school shutdowns,” said Teresa Masayesva, CRS assistant director. “It is the priority of CRS to provide youth activities and meaningful learning experiences at the WOLF during school breaks.”

Currently, the departments and programs are planning Winter Break Camp at WOLF, which will be held on December 23, 24, 27, 30, 31, January 2 and 3.
