Every summer, St. Joseph's Indian School hosts a summer day camp as a part of our outreach programs for Lakota (Sioux) youth on the Lower Brule and Crow Creek Indian Reservations. The camp takes place on St. Joseph's campus the first four weeks following Memorial Day.
This year's camp begins on May 29. We are very excited to welcome children from local Native American reservations to our campus for days packed full of activities!
