junior crrew: the summer camp for young activists
Coming August 14th
Seattle, WA: At junior crrew, children ages 6-12 will learn about and engage in social justice activism through art, play, literacy, and more. In this two-week session, junior crrew campers will actively and collaboratively participate in questioning and analyzing the world around them. Camp is led by certificated racial and social justice educators dedicated to innovative pedagogy which encourages young people to be active in what they believe and in their communities. The final day of camp will be a family gathering where the campers share their activist ideas in a collective way that brings people together in thought and practice. There is a 20 camper cap for this camp, so sign up today! Registration fee is $500 for the two-week session.
This camp comes at a timely political climate where white supremacists are becoming more brazenly bold while the leaders of the country are complicit in this violence by being silent. CRREW is a collective of racial and social justice educators who see the need for teachers to become more open and willing to discuss race, equity, and whiteness in the classroom. This camp serves as an opportunity for teachers to work on these skills while, at the same time offering campers the opportunity to become young activists.
Dates: Two-week session from August 14-25
Time: Camp day is from 9 am – 1 pm (M-F)
Place: Sonic Athletics, Wallingford, 4430 Corliss Avenue N, Seattle, 98103
Cost: $5oo per camper
