Tuition & Dates

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a life-changing week-long overnight camp for youth aged 12-17 who want to make the world a better place.

 Whether you care about homelessness, climate change, bullying, animal cruelty, all of the above, or another important issue, YEA Camp will help you make an even bigger difference on a cause you care about.

YEA Camp currently has sessions in three states across the country: California, Oregon, and Massachusetts, but we have campers from all over the country (and sometimes even other countries!) attend our unique camp.

We will be announcing our updated 2015 dates and prices by November 1, so check back soon for details.

We will be updating this space with our 2015 prices shortly. The price is all-inclusive, including comfortable cabin lodging at our beautiful venue, nutritious mostly organic food, all activities and workshops, a highly experienced adult staff at a phenomenal camper-to-staff-ratio of less than 3:1, and inclusion in our post-camp follow-up mentoring program and community.


YEA Camp has a scholarship program for low-income youth who have not attended YEA Camp before and would not otherwise be able to afford to attend. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please click “register” and have the camper fill out the application. Then you will see a link to the scholarship application to fill out.

YEA Camp is a nonprofit organization committed to social justice and diversity in our programs. We do not turn eager campers away due to lack of funds. We rely on an honor code to ensure that each family pays what they can and that funding is available for those who need it.
