The article is devoted to the methods of traditional education of the Evens in nomad camps that can be used to educate all children of indigenous peoples of the North. The authors focus on particular features, forms and methods of organising traditional education of such children in a nomad camp. Nomad camp is a new form of a temporarily organised group of children that spend their summer vacations in the nature where the life and activity of indigenous peoples of the North are best seen (nomadic reindeer breeding brigades, taiga, grasslands, rivers, lakes, etc.) as the basis for traditional education and up-bringing of their children. Such conditions ensure a faster and better development of the ethnic identity of such children as the native speakers and representatives of the Northern ethnos. In nomad camps teachers use different folk education methods to teach national games, dnces and sewing, customs and rituals to children. The authors of the article develop and put into practice their conceptual model of nomad camp activity as well as their program of traditional echnic development of children of indigenous peoples of the North as native speakers and representatives of their culture.
