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.
The Chickasaw Youth Clubs of Sulphur and Tishomingo offer after-school and summer programs for children ages 5 to 17, providing numerous sports, art programs and forums for cultural education. "We try to help them think about their future and what it is that they want to do once they graduate high school," says Chickasaw Youth Clubs Operations Manager Sherri Miller. To be eligible for enrollment, each child must meet age requirements and be either a Chickasaw citizen or the child of a Chickasaw Nation employee. For more information, visit Chickasaw.net.
