SUPPORT OUR CHILDREN
For over 58 years, our FREE summer camps have been a life-changing experience for over 15,000 needy Native American children. Our children come to this summer refuge from the pressing poverty of their homes in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and Montana.
We encourage our children's faith in God. The children are motivated and inspired to believe if they trust in God and work with Him, they CAN be successful and happy in life! They CAN change their world for the better!
Our Eagle Flight Scholarship Program offers scholarship incentives that encourage our children and teens to excel in school, graduate and go on to college, vocational school, or university.
School supplies, winter coats, shoes, food bank shipments and more are all part of our Emergency Assistance Program for needy Native American children and their families, most of which live in poor Indian communities and on remote reservations.
Over the years, more than 16,000 Indian children have come to our free Eagle Flight Summer Camps to experience a brief respite from their daily lives. Our camps have literally become a summer refuge for the boys and girls who attend.
Camp days are full of volleyball, basketball, swimming, hiking, arts and crafts, healthy meals, evening movies, and spending time with newfound friends. We also have chapel and vesper services filled with inspirational and dynamic guest speakers, group “life skits” and singing of hymns – sometimes in their own native tongue.
We believe camp life opens the eyes of these youngsters to the dreams of a college education, job training, marketable skills, and the most valuable, personal gift of all – hope and self-worth!
Our campers are challenged each day to dream large and trust in God to help make their dreams come true! Like the mighty eagle in Isaiah 40:31, we encourage each child to believe they were Born to Fly!!
