Experience. Lead. Change.
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!
Who is it for?
Rising 8th & 9th graders are eligible, but rising 10th graders can be accepted in special cases — if a student has applied to be in the High School Leadership Program and has been wait listed, for example.
What does it cost?
Program fees vary based on the date of payment of the $100 non-refundable deposit per child. This deposit must be received in order to lock in rates.
Balance paid in full is required before the start of camp. However, full payment at the time of application is greatly appreciated. A limited amount of Financial Aid is available, and students are encouraged to raise their program fee through fundraising. The cost structure used in 2018 is shown below:
- $950 if paid before March 30
- $1050 if paid before April 30
- $1150 if paid before June 1
- $1300 if paid on or after June 1
Please Note: Paying for goods or services with a credit card does incur a 3% transaction fee. Please know that it is always okay to mail in a check instead if you do not wish to pay the fee.
Full refunds (excluding the $100 deposit) will be granted before June 1. Withdrawals after June 1 incur full tuition charges for the session. Exceptions to the payment policy will be granted for medical reasons.
Before and After Care
Before Care (8:30 to 9:30 am) and After Care (3:15 to 5:00 pm) services are available for an additional cost per child of $200 for the session. Note that this $200 fee includes BOTH before and after care.
