About the Camp

An experience like no other, this camp has it all — culture, college prep and careers. The CIRI C3 Experience is an overnight camp that brings together young CIRI shareholders and descendants (ages 15-19) to foster leadership skills and help prepare them for college and their careers. While at camp, participants will hear from Alaska Native professionals and engage in collaborative exercises to hone their skills to successfully apply for college, draft the perfect essay, learn about internship opportunities at Alaska Native organizations and much more.

The CIRI C3 Experience also engages the participants in Alaska Native culture. From Elder storytellers to Alaska Native games and dances, the camp celebrates the rich cultures and diversity of Alaska Native peoples. All transportation (including airfare, if applicable), housing and meal costs are covered for qualified participants.
