The activities that the participants will be learning include swimming, beading, weaving, cultural dancing, and Utt building. Additional activities will focus on learning the history of the Proa, Carolinian and Chamorro methods of navigation and sail, and the native agriculture in the CNMI.

To qualify for the camp, participants must be a high school junior, senior, or recent high school graduate and self-identify as Chamorro and/or Carolinian, per grant requirements. Interested individuals must be program eligible to participate.
