Training Camp Participant
BMIS is an all-volunteer, grassroots-funded organization with a small budget. To offset camp costs, we are asking for sliding scale donations based on financial ability. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but the donations will help cover camp costs, provide stipends and gas money for local Dineh organizers, and travel stipends for Indigenous & POC & working class trainers and participants at their request.
Please donate here:

Logistics of Camp
The camp is in a rural area with no running water and electricity. Most participants will be camping. There will be a few indoor spaces for those who need it. We will send a preparedness and cultural sensitivity guide and camp expectations to participants in the month prior to camp.
Are you prepared to spend the week without electricity and running water? Camping? Forty miles from a town and with spotty cell reception?
Will you have transportation?
Camp Coordinators can help find rides from Phoenix and or Flagstaff for those flying.
Are you excited?!
