Salmon Camp is a component of the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission’s Tribal Workforce Development program. The annual camp focuses on providing culturally relevant science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) experiences to foster an interest in natural resources careers for Native American youth. The Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation will host Salmon Camp on July 29 – August 4, 2018 on and near the Yakama Indian Reservation in Central Washington. Youth will participate in hands-on activities exploring the salmon life cycle, watershed health, and food webs. They will have opportunities to speak with tribal elders, community leaders, and professionals about tribal histories, educational opportunities, and career paths.
