Youth Camp Features All-Vegan Menu and Activism Workshops

Young adults interested in promoting social change can learn more in California, Oregon, or New York.


The Youth Empowered Action (YEA) summer camp aimed at social change is back this summer to provide attendees the opportunity to pursue community service, activism, and social justice in the cause of their choice. Founded in 2009 by long-time vegan activist Nora Kramer, YEA caters to young adults ages 12–17 and “bust(s) the myth of the apathetic teenager.” Beginning this year, a special session focused exclusively on animal-related issues will be offered in High Falls, NY, from August 9–16. Currently, campers from around the world are enrolled in YEA camps, which take place in California, Oregon, and New York. Camps feature an all-vegan menu filled with local, fair-trade, and organic food, and attendees learn about everything from art activism and fundraising to non-violent communication.
