Summer Camp Proposals Due December 1

2023 Call for Summer Camp Proposals

Greetings Camp Coordinators and Partners,

It is that time of the year again to plan for 2023 summers camps.  Many of you have already held summer camps in the past and in turn, all elements of the proposal are items you have already completed.  Please complete the attached summer camp proposal documents if you are interested in holding a camp at Iḷisaġvik College in summer 2023.

In order to determine which camps will be held during which dates, we will need all proposal paperwork submitted NO LATER than December 1, 2022.  We greatly appreciate your cooperation with this deadline.  Any proposals submitted after that date will not be considered for the 2023 summer camp season. The dates will be held on a first-come, first-serve basis upon confirmation of funding. If you are currently in the process of securing funding, you can still submit your proposal, but be sure to follow up with a document from your funder once funding is secured.  Also, if you know of any other parties that might be interested in submitting a proposal for summer camps this year please feel free to forward this email to them. 

Attached are forms that need to be added to the google docs, please follow the link to fill out this year’s Camp Proposal Application:
