Applications are only accepted when all forms are completed and registration fee is paid. Please read the entire packet with your child so everyone has a successful and enjoyable time. If you live in Maricopa County, physicals must be completed by a NATIVE HEALTH medical provider. Deadline for applications is Friday, May 4, 2018. NATIVE HEALTH provides transportation within 15 miles of our facilities, should you need a ride to see our providers.

NATIVE HEALTH is entering its 16th year offering American Indian/Alaskan youth tools to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. In addition to offering a fun outdoor camping experience, the LWT Summer Camp also provides education on the importance of nutrition, physical activity, self-esteem, diabetes prevention, and traditional activities.

Behavior and discipline problems can affect camp activities and other children’s camping experience. Parents will be contacted in the event behavior problems arise, and campers may be dismissed and will have to be picked up by the parent/guardian at the camp, at your own cost. Please do not mail or send any food, drinks, candy or gum for your camper. We do not allow food in the living units because these items attract rodents or wildlife. Three meals as well as morning and afternoon snacks with healthy drinks will be provided.

LWT Summer Camp is a place for safe, wholesome fun and learning. We are dedicated to keeping it that way. Thank you for sharing your camper with us and we will be working very hard to make sure they have a great time at camp this summer. If you have any questions please call Amanda Chee at (602) 279-5262 ext. 3457 or email: achee@nachci.com
