Camp Kic-A-wah services Tribal households with educational opportunities through our after school program for grades K-12th. The after school program provides a nutritional snack upon arrival, homework assistance and tutoring with certified teachers from the school district. During the summer, the camp offers an all day camp for the same age groups. During camp, the children learn more of their heritage and culture through classes taught by staff and Tribal Elders. We focus on language of the Catawba’s, pottery and other traditional arts. The Camp also teaches children about outdoor safety, home cooking, environmental classes, gardening, native games, and other summer activities. Camp Kic-A-Wah also houses the tribe's only library with a special emphasis on Native American literature for all ages. Youth also have the benefit of a computer lab to assist them with their school projects.

During the summer, children in our camp participate in cultural activities, such as archery, drumming, dancing and much more.
Children enrolled in our after school and summer programs learn to be responsible by caring for our pet lizard, Jimmy.
During the summer, the children go on many different field trips, from museums to fishing trips.
