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 an equitable world for us all.

Because we compensate all our instructors and offer camp on a sliding scale we also engage in wealth redistribution, supporting the people and programs making a better world for us all.

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 once-weekly racial 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, and debrief sessions about current events.

"As a parent, listening from the other room, I am learning too, in particular perspectives & points of view I had not considered before. Camp conversations on important social justice issues have led to an awareness and enlightening opportunity for our family."

"Camp Equity has given (my daughter) even more vocabulary, information, and confidence to contribute to our conversations. We learn a lot from her."

"Talking about and reflecting on the different Camp Equity topics has helped us realize how we can be impacted by equity issues, how sometimes we have privilege, how we can be an ally to others, has raised our awareness of the world around us, and increased our understanding of different communities."
