Summer Youth Organizing Camp 2014

Youth Camp 2014

 Registration is closed for this event

Wayside’s youth camp is a very dynamic, fun, and relaxing learning /relationship building space, where youth come together and talk about how to create the change they want to see happen in their communities. Sessions will include themes and topics such as: tools and strategies on how to make change, youth oppression and youth activism, differences between traditional education and popular education, the roles of power and privilege in communities and school systems. And of course, time to sit around the fire, swim in the creek, have fun, and meet new people! 

If you are between the ages of 13 and 19 and are interested in making your community and school a better  place for ALL young people, and would like to be part of this youth camp, please contact us! Youth will have the opportunity to meet other young people from different regions, share their experiences, reflect on what goes on in their schools and communities, and have fun!!

When? Wednesday, August 13th to Saturday, August 16th

Where? Wayside Center for Popular Education 1100 Mill Pond Rd Faber, VA 22938

Time: Youth can arrive after 3pm on Wednesday, August 13th. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm with the first session of the camp beginning after dinner and ending with Saturday lunch at 1:00pm.

 Youth are required to participate in all sessions beginning on Wednesday after dinner.

We ask for a suggested workshop fee of $50-$75 per youth. If this fee can’t be afforded, we will work with youth and families to brainstorm ways to fundraise.  Scholarships are available and no youth will be turned away because of lack of money. Please contact us and we will work with your particular situation.

All participants are required to turn in medical release and permission forms in order to participate in the program. A strict no-drug, no drinking policy is enforced as well as other boundaries that are aimed to keep young people safe during this camp. 

We can’t wait to see you out a Wayside soon!

After you register, we will be in touch!
