Welcome to Camp Equity!

Camp Equity is a virtual camp that educates young people on social justice movements by connecting them with grassroots leaders from across the U.S. Our programs enable youth to meet a diverse array of peers with whom they explore topics in breakout cabins, inspiring growth, building community, and encouraging them to become changemakers in pursuit of a more equitable world.

Camp 101 - It's back!

It’s back! Our flagship program, first offered in the fall of 2020, is back for Campers entering 3rd – 12th grade! Camp runs for 12 weeks, beginning Tuesday, November 9th and ending Tuesday, February 8th. There will be no camp held on Tuesday, December 21st, or Tuesday, December 28th. Camp is held for ninety minutes, from 7-830pm ET.

We Offer Three Types of Camps!

Camp 101

An overview of social justice topics where we explore a different movement each week.

Camp 201

For more experienced campers and those who want to engage with materials outside of camp, our 2.0 camp allows us to go deeper into an array of topics.

Deep Dives

These six week long sessions go deep into a specific community or movement, allowing us to explore it from multiple lenses and perspectives.

In addition to camps we run Affinity Groups for campers to find a safe space to grapple with their personal experiences with others who experience the world through a similar lens.

Finally, all of our campers are invited to attend special sessions which may include documentary screenings, dance parties, debrief sessions about current events and more.

Kids love Camp Equity!

"I like Camp Equity because I get to expand my horizons and think about other things besides school, Covid-19 and our country. I look forward to this every week because it's a chance for me to learn, ask questions, and engage with others who have similar thoughts to me."

"Camp Equity makes me see things from other people’s point of view, and I have learned so much about what’s going on, and how to be a better ally, and how I can make a change. I would not be the same without it.”
