Sign Up for Camp Cultural Leadership
Registration for Summer 2018 Now Open
Cultural Leadership is looking for rising 8th- and 9th-grade students 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 younger 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!
