For the second year in a row, from August 20-24, 2012, the Biological Station hosted Camp KinoMaage.  The camp is a week-long meeting of middle school students from Native American tribes across Michigan.  Students stay at the Biological Station and learn science from UMBS staff and faculty, Native American culture from local tribal elders, and Ojibwe language from faculty and students in the U-M Native American Studies program.

The camp is organized by the U-M Center for Educational Outreach and the Native American Studies Program.
