At YEA Camp, we love summer! After a couple weeks of rest at the end of August, we’re basically looking forward to summer for the rest of the year! And so, while it’s not yet Thanksgiving, we are already planning and are beyond thrilled to announce our 2015 dates, as well as a couple of big firsts for us!
As those who have followed us or been to YEA Camp know, YEA Camp has never been about one particular issue. YEA Camp is a summer camp for social change. Our campers and staff are passionate about many important, interconnected causes – from human rights to animal rights, climate change to feminism, bullying to poverty. Each camper chooses an issue they are passionate about it, and at YEA Camp they build knowledge, skills and confidence to make a difference on that cause. You can see almost daily updates on all the activism they’re doing on our Facebook page.
This year, for the first time, in addition to our regular ol’ life-changing sessions, YEA Camp is going to be offering a special session for campers who are all passionate about the same issue – or what we call their IOI, their Issue of Importance. This is a perfect fit for our new venue that we are thrilled to announce to you here!
This summer, YEA Camp will be offering a session specifically for animal advocates. We will be holding this session August 9-16, 2015, at a perfect new location: the Epworth Center in High Falls, NY, which is the new home for Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary! Learn more about this one-of-a-kind session here.
Our regular ol’ life-changing east coast session of YEA Camp for campers passionate about lots of different progressive issues will be held that week at this beautiful new property as well. We are thrilled to be at this amazing new venue! And of course we will still be offering our sessions at beautiful venues in northern California and Oregon.
- YEA Camp Northern California: July 12-19
- YEA Camp Oregon: July 25 – August 1
- YEA Camp Upstate New York: August 9-16
The NY dates will have 2 sessions:
-a “regular” YEA Camp and
-YEA Camp for Animal Advocates
Each session of YEA Camp is small, and space is limited and first-come, first-served. We are also offering last year’s pricing as a significant early bird discount until January 1, so check out the details and session that work best for you, or just go ahead and register! We expect all sessions to sell out, so please share with those who would want to know about us.
Looking forward to another amazing summer! We are already counting the days, and as of this writing the first session of YEA Camp is in just 235…!
