CURRENT & UPCOMING CAMPS

Camp 101

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, as a way to accommodate campers from across the U.S. Our sessions so far have included campers from over thirty states and we are thrilled to offer this slightly later time to enable even more students to attend.

“(CAMP 101) has truly given her a space to think deeply and critically about issues of social justice/injustice and to practice finding her own voice in it all…I truly can’t overstate what a profound impact this has had on her development. And what a salve it has been to have this space during this particular time, especially.” – Camp Equity Parent

At Camp 101, Campers spend each week exploring a different topic in social justice movements, through the eyes of a lived-experience leader in our nation. Last year’s instructors included Scott Briscoe, founder of We’ve Got Next and a member of the first African American expedition team to climb Mount Dinali, Sara Minkara, a Blind, Muslim, and First Generation American and inclusivity pioneer, and Carlos Mark Vera, the Forbes 30 Under 30 Founder of Pay our Interns which has so far helped secure over $48 million dollars in paid internship funding by the United States government. You can read more about last year’s 101 session here. Our slate of 2021 instructors will be entirely brand new, and you can meet them below!

“Camp Equity has taught me about important social justice issues in the world and I have learned many things from being apart of Camp Equity! Camp Equity has made me want to learn more about important issues occurring in society and people involved in them. In addition, Camp Equity has inspired me to want to make positive and impactful changes in the world in the future.”
– Chloe, High School Camp 101 Camper

Each session of Camp also includes “cabin time” where campers will meet with similar-aged campers from across the U.S. to play games, dive deeper into each week’s topics, and explore the identities of themselves and others. Cabins are facilitated by our camp counselors, diverse young adults with experience in activism, youth development, education and more. Meet some of our past counselors here! 

“Right from the first orientation session, [my daughter] has spoken so excitedly about her counselors and how they’re both fantastic at explaining and encouraging discussion and making meetings fun. She said it’s the most welcoming and inclusive group she’s ever been a part of and she’s never had discussions like the ones at Camp Equity in her school…[she] has also noted that she likes meeting other campers from all around the US – that it really feels like people she would be friends with in person if she met them.” – Camp Equity Parent

As always, Camp is offered on a fully sliding scale starting at $0 with more information on our sign up page. The majority of our tuition payments cover the cost of instructor honorariums (one of the ways we redistribute wealth to historically under resourced communities), counselor salaries, and other program specific costs. If you’d like to make a donation to support our full time staff salaries and the associated costs of running a nonprofit organization, please click here or email our COO Lauren Burke at Lauren@campequity.com.
