A variety of programs such as camps, clubs and classes exists to help Chickasaws of all ages learn the ancestral language. By fusing learning with excitement, these programs increase retention and spark a passion for sharing the language with others.
This language camp for families helps parents and kids unplug and focus their time and energy on basic, functional Chickasaw language skills. They learn words and phrases they can use in everyday life and they have fun doing it. Many families come back year after year to build on their language skills. The camp caters to beginners and more advanced Chickasaw speaking families. Contact the Chickasaw Language Department for information about future camps. More information on the Chickasaw language revitalization program is available at Chickasaw.net.
