2013 Tours & Camps

InterTribal Youth's eye-opening guided tours are our most popular programs.
Each year we lead small groups of Native Youth and Adults as well as non-Native folks on tours and outdoor adventures which weaves Academics, Adventure, Recreation, and Cultural Exploration into life-changing experiences.
Optional, educational course work is tailored to students and there is no GPA requirement to participate.
