Sign Up for Camp Cultural Leadership

Registration for Summer 2018 Now Open

Cultural Leadership is looking for rising 8th-10th grade students (and 11th grade with permission) to participate in Camp Cultural Leadership. Camp Cultural Leadership is a condensed, age appropriate version of our award-winning high school program. Our camp program increases cultural awareness through hands-on activities, develops leadership skills, and fosters a passion for social justice. During the camp session, students will take an overnight trip to either Memphis or Chicago designed to complement the camp curriculum. During this trip, campers will visit people and places relevant to social justice and democracy.


Camp Cultural Leadership is a perfect opportunity for students who want a taste of our high school program's curriculum. In fact, 40% of Camp Cultural Leadership participants go onto be part of our prestigious high school program!


Camp Cultural Leadership offers two sessions. The two-week session (July 9-20) will include the overnight trip to either Memphis or Chicago. The three-week session will include this overnight trip, as well as a local, overnight retreat that takes place during the third week. 


Camp Registration Fees:
