Camp Ogichi Daa Kwe
The girls' version of the camp started in 2005. Ogichi Daa Kwe means female warrior, and that is what becomes of young women who adventure through this beautiful camp.
The camps are focused on creating expertise, rathern than mere exposure to a variety of activities. Participants will leave their experience knowing more than most in any of these areas:
Camp sessions range from 3 to 8 weeks, including month-long canoe trips.
"Kooch-i-ching focuses on community, wilderness trips and learning. We celebrate the individual through inclusion and recognizing their is no "bench" to sit on while at camp. Everyone is a participant and we find the best in each individual. Our wilderness trips are some of the finest in the country. While in camp, our classes are set up so that campers learn real skills as opposed to just trying something once." Camp Director
