Action Camp is a week-long intensive training program designed to unite community members, students, organizers, and other people interested in learning more about campaign development and expanding their direct action skills base. The program is usually designed in collaboration with sponsoring organizations that have a deep commitment to long-term work with participants.
At Action Camp, participants split their time between theoretical workshops focusing on a wide array of organizing and campaign skills, and hands-on technical training in nonviolent direct action tactics.
Action Camp is also an opportunity for participants to share strategies, development leadership skills, and form relationships that help networking and alliance building.
Many of our Action Camps are open to the public and require an application for admission.
We can also work with new partners who would like a specific issue or community focused Action Camp. Please contact us if you and your group would like a tailored Action Camp at firstname.lastname@example.org!
