Quaker Oaks Farm
Spring Youth Service Learning Camp 2015
March 31 to April 4th 2015
All interested high school aged youth (and mature middle schoolers) are invited to Quaker Oaks Farm’s 2015 Spring Service Learning Camp, in partnership with the Wukchumni Tribe and the Youth Programs of the Pacific Yearly Meeting Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
This camp will be focused on learning about Native American History and Culture, more specifically about the Wukchumni Yokuts from Central California’s San Joaquin Valley.
We will have sessions using the Gathering Of Native American (GONA) curriculum, facilitated by the Wukchumni people and other California Natives, incorporating Historical Events and Contemporary Native Americans Lifestyles.
This will be an opportunity for Quakers and Wukchumni to share and learn from each other about who we are, where we come from, and historical events not usually taught in school. There will be interactions with Tribal Elders, learning local Wukchumni Traditions, a field trip to a National Forest, many other fun activities, and the opportunity to participate in a sweat lodge ceremony.
