Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp, a week-long overnight summer camp in Southern Oregon for up-and-coming environmental and social justice activists ages 14 through 18. The camp is hosted by Eugene-based organization Civil Liberties Defense Center and Rogue Valley based organization called Rogue Climate. Our fifth annual camp will be from June 27th – July 3rd at Lobster Creek Camp, 30 miles east of Gold Beach, Oregon.
About 35 youth will come together to form alliances, learn from experienced mentors and frontline organizers, and gain the skills to fight for climate justice in a fun and safe setting. Workshops to include: Campaign strategy, demonstration planning, protest art and banner making, theater and poetry for activism, public speaking, writing press releases, using the media, know your rights, decolonizing our activism and more. Opportunities for nature hikes, lake swimming, campfire songs and story telling! The week will culminate in a youth-led public event focused on a regional climate justice campaign.
Camp tuition is $350.00, but no one will be turned away if they can’t afford the fee. We have full and partial scholarships to cover tuition, and we’ll also have van-pool transportation available from Jackson County, Humboldt County, Portland and Eugene.
