Camp Pride Summer Leadership Academy

Since 2006, Camp Pride has been recognized as the leading training program for social justice and grassroots activism for LGBTQ+ and ally young people on college campuses. Historically an in-person summer camp with between 50-75 participants, this year’s Camp Pride will be conducted online with more than 150 participants expected from around the country.

“Camp Pride moved online in the wake of the pandemic for the last two years, and we learned that the virtual camp model made Camp far more accessible,” said Campus Pride Executive Director Shane Windmeyer. “This year, we continue making Camp Pride accessible to as many young activists as possible, teaching the skills they’ll employ as the LGBTQ+ community fights back against increasing attacks on our rights.” 

“Camp Pride Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity to experience community with otherLGBTQ+ student leaders and allies from across the country,” said Campus Pride Board Chair Tom Elliott. “The resources and tools that students receive during Camp serve as the foundation for a lifelong commitment to advocacy for equality, inclusivity, and social justice. As a graduate of the 2008 Camp Pride, my continued fight for a society free of anti-LGBTQ bigotry and hate still draws on the skills I learned during my Camp Pride experience.”
