Experience. Lead. Change: Welcome to Camp LEAD
Ignite a Lifelong Passion for Social Justice and Leadership
What is Camp LEAD?
Camp LEAD is more than just a summer camp; it's a transformative experience designed to awaken the changemaker in every student. Modeled after our award-winning high school program, Camp LEAD offers a condensed, age-appropriate curriculum that focuses on increasing cultural awareness, honing leadership skills, and instilling a passion for social justice. Your child will engage in hands-on activities, participate in an enriching overnight trip, and connect with a like-minded community, all while learning the fundamentals of activism and leadership.
