Who doesn't want a healthy and happy family? Luckily, Chickasaw families have access to youth camps and clubs to inspire and encourage young people. Cultural workshops and directories connect families to their tribe. And a full range of crisis intervention programs help families when they need it the most.
Students interested in literature can learn about the process of publishing their own work in the Chickasaw Nation's Book Creation Camp. During the three-day camp, students work together to craft their stories and, once the story is written, students follow the book’s development through the illustration and design processes. Citizens between the ages of 12 and 18 are eligible to attend; just submit an application, along with a writing and illustration sample, to the Chickasaw Press offices.
