Camp Pride Virtual Leadership Academy

By Charlotte Robinson, June 22, 2022

Campus Pride the nation’s premier nonprofit dedicated to building future leaders & making college & university campuses safer & more welcoming for LGBTQ people announced that registration is open for the 16th Annual Camp Pride Leadership Academy to be held virtually from July 14th to 16th. Shane Windmeyer Campus Pride Executive Director stated, “Camp Pride moved online in the wake of the pandemic for the last two years & we learned that the virtual camp model made Camp far more accessible. 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.” Tom Elliott Campus Pride Board Chair concluded, “Camp Pride Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity to experience community with other LGBTQ+ student leaders & allies from across the country. The resources & tools that students receive during Camp serve as the foundation for a lifelong commitment to advocacy for equality, inclusivity & social justice. As a graduate of the 2008 Camp Pride, my continued fight for a society free of anti-LGBTQ bigotry & hate still draws on the skills I learned during my Camp Pride experience.” Since 2006 Camp Pride has been recognized as the leading training program for social justice & grassroots activism for LGBTQ & ally young people on college campuses. This year’s Camp Pride will be conducted virtually with more than 150 participants expected from around the country. Registration for Camp Pride is open now until Wednesday July 15th.
