Good afternoon Campers.
We have arrived at the door. Some bullet points for all so we can get ready for the event:
• Camp begins Monday evening June 25 with registration open at 1pm
• The camp is Tuesday, Wednesday and ½ day on Thursday. Take a look at the draft of the schedule to see what we are planning to do. This will change as we get closer to the camp.
• You can contact Marcey Craynon (928-769-2223) tp verify your youth camp lodging assignments.
• All payment for registration needs to be money orders or tribal purchase checks if you are coming with a group or program. We will do our best to make sure that all who registered and paid will have it attributed to them if there are problems with the camp.
• There is always a possibility of the camp being closed due to fire restrictions and actual fire. Let’s think positive and believe that all will come off without a hitch.
• This is a language speaking camp. Please refer to the 101 phrase which are conversational and see how you can get them translated in your languages. We already have 2 that are translated, SR Piipaash and Barona Kumeyaay. These are phrases that are used in a daily normal context and are a great foundation for using the language in your conversations. Please see the attached PDF-YLFS Immersion Camp 2018 (page 6).
• T-shirts will be available for purchase at the camp. We plan on having the phrase; “Gathering together to speak the language” We have it in Mojave: Matakyev Makav 'Achakwarm, "Điga:vik, bay ba Gwa:wjik" (Hualapai)"Matasheevshik kwaarkwaarm" (Piipaash) . We are looking for more translations from the other groups. You need to send them to Lucille W. to be included. Her email is : email@example.com. Get together and discuss how your group would like to present it.
• We are honoring 3 language teachers, elders, activists, people etc. from each community who promote and are helping to revitalize the languages in their nations. Please check out the Honoring form and turn it in to Lucille. They can be a young adult to an elder but one who is working hard to help save the languages.
• We are asking each designated tribal group to donate 3 cultural items that represent their tribe. These will be handed out to the recipients of the language honor. For more information contact Gary Owens, 480-362-6320
Thank for all your commitment to this year’s camp.
