CURRENT & UPCOMING CAMPS
DEEP DIVE: THE POWER OF PRIDE
Exploring Trans, Queer, and Intersectional Movements for Liberation!
A Camp Equity Deep Dive from May 18 – June 23rd. Registration is closed but you can always learn more about the camp!
We are so thrilled to round out our first year of programming with three different camps this summer! All programs are open to *any* camper entering 4th – 12th grade, regardless if you’ve attended Camp Equity programming in the past. Space is limited for our summer programming so please do sign up ASAP! Looking for Camp 101? Our next session will be offered in the Fall!
CAMP 201: Be a Changemaker!
3-5pm ET, Monday through Friday, from August 2nd – August 6th
Our much-anticipated Camp 201 is a week-long session where Campers will get to unlock their own superpower as a changemaker in this world. Forming incredible bonds with cabin mates from across the U.S., campers will explore how youth movements have fought for social justice, identify their own passions, skills, and interests, and work together on a project to further equity in their communities today. Camp meets daily from 3-5pm ET, Monday through Friday, and runs from August 2nd – August 6th. In order to get the most out of their week, Campers will be expected to complete developmentally appropriate activities outside of camp time such as watching a documentary, engaging in conversations with family and friends, or reading an article about current movements!
Please note, Camp 201 is open to any interested camper whether you’ve attended Camp Equity in the past or are brand new to our program.
While all Camps take place at the same time, we will be splitting into three different groups, each of whom will be led by a member of the Camp Equity team and, of course, one of our incredible counselors TBD!
- Entering 4th – 6th graders will be led by Ms. Lauren
- Entering 7th and 8th graders will be led by Ms. Alex
- Entering 9th – 12th graders will be led by Ms. Donnie
Spaces are limited and available on a rolling basis with spots available at all ends of our sliding scale including fully subsidized. If your camper is interested in 201, please fill out this registration form ASAP and we will be in touch shortly!
HEALING IN COMMUNITY: For BIPOC Campers and Families
Tuesday nights from 6:30 – 7:30pm ET from July 13th – August 24th
The past twelve months have taken a toll on all of us but especially on families who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). Our first two affinity groups showed the importance of coming together in a safe space to speak our truths, build community, and unlock more ways of accessing joy and love in difficult times. We are honored to host a seven week session for BIPOC campers and anyone from their family to join our space to breathe free, practice and learn self care techniques such as affirmations, yoga, and mindfulness, and heal. Families are invited to attend all seven sessions or come on a drop in basis with sessions taking place on Tuesday nights from 6:30 – 7:30pm ET from July 13th – August 24th. This program will be facilitated by Ms. Donnie and Ms. Alex as well as our counselors and special guests!
This program is offered to campers AND family members on a drop in basis, entirely for free! Come to one session or all seven based upon your availability and needs. To sign up please fill out the following form and we will be back in touch with more details at the beginning of June!
UPROOTING WHITE SUPREMACY: For White-Identifying Campers and Families
7 Monday nights, July 12th to August 23rd from 6:30-8pm ET
Layla Saad, the Author of Me and White Supremacy writes, “You cannot dismantle what you cannot see. You cannot challenge what you do not understand.” Individuals who are white, who live with white privilege, are the reason white supremacy exists yet, for far too long the work of dismantling white supremacy has fallen on the shoulders of BIPOC.
This seven-week course will take campers and their parents/guardians on a journey to first understand their complicity in a white supremacist system, identify the ways in which their white fragility, white apathy, and white paralysis has prevented them from doing the work, and make commitments to lead more anti racist lives. We will root ourselves in love for each other and hope for what the world can be but this will be difficult work and requires bravery, commitment, and raw truth. Campers must sign up with one adult in their lives who pledges to attend each week with outside reading and work required with purchase of Layla Saad’s text to take place before Camp begins. Space will be limited to twelve families on our signature sliding scale basis with all funds raised going to support our entirely free program for BIPOC families, “Healing in Community.”
Camp will take place over the course of seven Monday nights, July 12th to August 23rd from 6:30-8pm ET. This course will be led by Ms. Lauren who has led over 300 individuals in addressing their complicity in white supremacy in the past year.
Our uprooting white supremacy program is open by application only and requires the consistent commitment of at least one camper and one adult caregiver or parent to attend all eight sessions. Spots are very limited so apply today!
Finally, we will be hosting a number of Special Events this summer including documentary screenings of films featuring our past instructors, a campfire talent show for campers and staff, and more! These events will be open to the entire community regardless of whether or not you’re participating in a summer program so stay tuned to our newsletter and social media channels to register for these community events!
