Camp Anytown Las Vegas is a one-of-a kind program with a 37-year history and longest running Anti-racist youth program in the state of Nevada. Since 1983, we’ve engaged over 4,000 CCSD students from over 60 high schools in Southern Nevada. Our program intentionally recruits students from different religious identification/spiritual expression/humanistic beliefs, racial and gender identities, socio-economic and immigration statuses, orientations, and cultures to learn about Anti-racist work, racial equity, leadership, and advocacy.
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. ⠀
Delegates learn to promote the acceptance and appreciation of people from different backgrounds in ways that enhances coexistence and cooperation.
Each session serves as a proving ground where delegates explore ways to become stronger allies and develop strategies to eliminate prejudice in their community.
Delegates learn about the principle of treating others as oneself would wish to be treated - without exception, absolute justice, equity and respect.
Founded in 1928, The National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ) was a human rights organization focused on combating intereligious prejudice. NCCJ’s origins can be traced back to 1924, when the convention for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ began to discuss the growing power of the Ku Klux Klan. As a result, a committee on goodwill between Christians and Jews was developed.
