District IV Language and Cultural Camps

District IV provides financial support and camperships to four language and cultural camps.

Remember the Folk Art Competition coming up at the 2018 convention in Bismarck as you are working on handicrafts at camp and through the year.

Host lodge Sverdrup is offering an opportunity for campers to enter their cultural skills projects in a separate arts competition at the convention. It is open to any age level or skill level, but the project must be completed at the camp in 2016, 2017, or 2018. See the Cultural Camp Competition form for more information.
