students watch demonstration during 3rd Annual Camp Dreamcatcher Leadership InstituteThe Office of Indian Education held its 3rd Annual Camp Dreamcatcher Leadership Institute on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP) the second week of June.  Twenty-Five students in grades 8-12 from across the county participated in the event.  

The camp’s purpose is multi-faceted. First and foremost it teaches American Indian and Alaskan Native students that college is an attainable goal and “dreams do come true”.

Students engage in purposeful and meaningful activities during their time on campus; they experience college life up-close and personal. Living on campus, dining in the dining hall, interacting with college professors, engaging with college students, learning about college admissions, removing and/or reducing the fear-factor associated with leaving home and embracing one’s native culture is an integral part of the leadership institute.
