YEA Camp was founded by Nora Kramer, a longtime educator and advocate for progressive causes. In her career working with youth for more than a decade, Nora has taught high school English, environmental education, at after-school programs, advised school clubs, and of course spent many summers as a camper and then staff member at camps. She has been active on numerous campaigns for social justice issues that she cares about deeply, including food justice, animal rights, environmental issues, anti-racism, women's rights, poverty, as well as on political campaigns. YEA Camp combines her passion for activism, commitment to social justice and transformational work, and her love for working with teenagers.
