YEA Camp



YEA Camp is a life-changing camp for world changing teens! Our week-long overnight camps are for 12-17 year-olds who want to make the world a better place.

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

We have campers from all over the country (and sometimes even other countries!) attend our unique camp. Space is very limited and first-come, first-served.

In 2017, YEA Camp held 3 life-changing week-long overnight sessions in Massachusetts, New York, and California. 
Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages to see how amazing they were!

We can't wait for next summer and expect to announce our 2018 dates and locations by November 1. Follow us on the social media pages or join our email list to be the first to know our 2018 dates!



The all-inclusive tuition for YEA Camp’s life-changing leadership camp is $1500.

Included in the cost of tuition is:
  • Comfortable cabin lodging at our beautiful venue.

  • Nutritious mostly organic vegan food (3 meals a day, 2 healthy snacks, and dessert!) prepared by incredible chefs.

  • Highly experienced adult staff supervision and teaching at a phenomenal camper-to-staff-ratio of less than 3:1.

  • Inclusion in our post-camp follow-up community to be able to support campers long after the summer is over.

  • Opportunities after camp to learn of relevant grants, scholarships, and events that we find out about.

  • Leadership experience that many of our campers focus on in college applications.

Payment Plans and Financial Aid

YEA - The Youth Empowered Action Camp offers convenient payment plans to make monthly payments toward your tuition. This option can be selected once the camper registers and the parent or guardian goes to make their payment.

Unlike most specialty camps, YEA Camp offers financial aid for low-income youth who have not attended YEA Camp before and would not otherwise be able to afford to attend. If your family would need financial aid to attend, review our financial aid protocol and then have the camper register at the Register page, at which point the parent or guardian will be directed to the Financial Aid application.

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. In order to accept campers on scholarship, 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. We rely on tax-deductible donations to our scholarship program to continue this policy.

Thanks so much for your interest in YEA Camp! We hope to see you this summer!


Great! We can't wait to meet you!
