Kansas City Indian Center is in its 36th year of hosting a five-day residential Culture Camp at the Lee's Summit Rotary campgrounds. Culture Camp provides an opportunity for all youth ages 5-13 to learn about American Indian culture while having fun with their peers. In addition, there are also opportunities for the older youth (ages 14-19) for leadership development with the Counselors in Training (CIT) program. Senior counselors and volunteers from the American Indian community work with the CITs and campers to aid in the understanding and appreciation of American Indian traditions, culture, and values. Campers learn about various songs, dances, and stories in addition to the expected fun of swimming, hiking, archery, fellowship, crafts and much more.
