There were over 1,200 people registered for the camp this year, with some coming from as far away as Norway and Germany.  The language camp offered different activities including a canoe race, a mini powwow, moccasin making, birch bark basket making, flute making, tanning hides, canoe races, and other traditional Ojibwe cultural skills. This is the fifth year the language camp has been held. For the first time this year, Fond du Lac Transit provided rides for reservation residents. The camp was started by Jim and Pat Northrup.
