WHO WE ARE

Camp Anytown Las Vegas is a social justice and leadership program that aims to establish, empower and equip the next wave of youth leaders.  Our program trains high school students in diversity, equity, and inclusion through interactive workshops, group dialogue, and campaigns centered around social justice.

 

The program is supported by the Anytown Youth Council, a youth led working board that provides strategic direction to the Anytown program and incorporates perspectives and voices of young people in each element of program planning. ⠀

Diversity

Delegates learn to promote the acceptance and appreciation of people from different backgrounds in ways that enhances coexistence and cooperation.

Community

Each session serves as a proving ground where delegates explore ways to become stronger allies and develop strategies to eliminate prejudice in their community.

Inclusivity

Delegates learn about the principle of treating others as oneself would wish to be treated - without exception, absolute justice, equity and respect.

History

Since 1983, Camp Anytown Las Vegas has directly impacted over 4,000 high school students in Southern Nevada with 30 different ethnic backgrounds and 25 religious traditions and/or spiritual or humanistic beliefs represented over the past 37 years. Alumni have gone on to represent Camp Anytown at the United Nations, national conferences, been elected to office, passed laws that support homeless and education initiatives, founded social justice programs, been elected to high school leadership positions, lobbied their elected officials in Carson City, NV and Washington, D.C, and return to volunteer for the program.
