One thing you won’t find at the annual Language Camp at the Kiwenz Campground in Sawyer is a strict schedule.

In fact, a request for precise Ojibwe camp event times was met with smiles from organizers Jim and Pat Northrup, who are in the sixth year of organizing the four-day, mostly free language camp. Rick Gresczyk also helps with organizing, with lots of support from Ivy and Arne Vainio and Rose Nordin.
