Kë Gbéshmen

Camp Staff Workshop Proposal Form

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we had to cancel camp for this year. Please check back in the future for further updates. 


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.
