    On Aug. 11, a dozen U-M staff, recent alumni, and student peer advisers gathered at the Center for Educational Outreach to get on the road to the U-M Biological Station at Douglas Lake. They had a long journey and a lot of work ahead, to prepare for the third annual Camp KinoMaage.

    The next day, they greeted 18 campers at KinoMaage, an immersive science and culture camp that encourages college-going among the youth of the Native American tribes of Michigan.
