Center solicited ideas for and recently updated the name of our weekly emails
formally known as the “Native Youth Listserv.” You will now see the
new name listed as “Native Opportunities Weekly” also
known as NOW! Thank you for everyone’s input.
Opportunities Weekly (NOW) message provides information about Indian
Youth of America’s Camp Bob Marshall.
Indian Youth of
America (IYA) is a non-profit, charitable Indian service organization
dedicated to improving the quality of life for Indian children. During the
summer of 2013, IYA’s Youth
Camp Program is celebrating its 37th Anniversary. The Youth Camp Program
has provided children from 190 tribes and 32 states with the
opportunity to receive positive guidance and mentoring from Indian staff,
share tribal traditions and develop friendships that last a lifetime.

Lake, six miles east of Custer, South Dakota. Activities include arts &
crafts, cultural activities, campfires, skits, hiking, volleyball, mushball,
