Do you care about the environment or animals? Want to end racism, homophobia, or bullying at your school? Or want to make a difference on another important issue?



And YEA Camp is the perfect place for you!

YEA Camp is a life-changing experience for progressive 12-17 year-olds who want to make our world a better place. (Note: If you are aged 18-20 and interested in being a counselor in training (CIT), please see info here.)

You will leave camp believing in yourself in a way you never have before, and with new skills, amazing close friendships, and an action plan that will help you go back home to make a big difference on a cause you care about.

So, how do you sign up?

We’re glad you asked! See our dates and locations around the country – we’re pretty proud to have campers flying in from all over the place to attend our unique camp! – and then fill out the form below.

The registration form below is for the camper to fill out.

(Parents, we’re talking to you here. We know YEA Camp will be an incredible experience for your kids — it will help their social skills, their self confidence, their leadership skills, have them make some of the best friends of their life, and even give them great things to put in their college applications — but no plagiarizing your kids’ application, please! It happens more than you’d think. Your kid needs to really want to come.)

Once you submit the application, you will be taken to a confirmation page and get an email link to where parents/guardians can make their payment and provide additional information.

Space is limited, and our Early Bird special, saving $150, is just until Valentine’s Day, February 14!

Thank you so much for your interest in YEA Camp and making our world a better place! We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to YEA Camp for the time of your life this summer!

  • Follow laws, including not using or bringing to camp any alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs, or weapons of any kind, as well as following all rules specified by the venue, such as quiet hours and restrictions on the property.
