WTF is Feminist Camp?

Feminist Camp isn't really a conference, and it isn't really a retreat. It's a front-row seat to feminist work, activism, and action beyond classroom theories. Our camps are designed so that campers can engage in highly participatory learning processes and explore more about themselves, their talents and what their feminist futures might look like. We introduce campers to fellow feminists who get sh*t done: by working for non-profits, volunteering, creating art, organizing, protesting, running businesses, and translating theory into action. With these connections and inspiration, Feminist Campers leave with a renewed sense of direction and the confidence to make the next move.

To say that Feminist Camp changed my life is no exaggeration. It was an experience unlike anything imaginable, and it gave me the strength to realize that being a feminist can be a full time job! It gave me the opportunity to meet so many empowered, intelligent and strong people (both presenters and campers) and learn about their stories as well as their careers.
