Kë Gbéshmen

Our youth summer camp is called Kë Gbéshmen, which means "let's camp."

Kë Gbéshmen aims to grow Bodwéwadmi zhetthkéwen, a sense of community, and stewards of the environment for the next 7 generations. It is our mission to ensure every Kë Gbéshmen camper:

  1. Has a healthy and enjoyable camp experience.
  2. Gains enthusiasm for their Potawatomi ways and environmental concerns.
  3. Receives new experiences, develops new skills and forges life-long friendships.
  4. Leaves camp an emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically stronger person.
  5. Establishes a stronger connection with Neshnabe history, culture and language.
