Campus Camp Wellstone

Saturday & Sunday, October 11-12
University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Campus Camp Wellstone, facilitated by Wellstone Action, is a 1½ day grassroots organizer training designed for college students and young people. The program is nonpartisan, and welcomes both experienced organizers and those who are completely new to activism. Campus Camp Wellstone (CCW) is an interactive, high-energy, problem-solving environment for all types of learners. The focus is on practicing concrete skills, like strategic planning, power mapping, grassroots organizing, and message development. The goal is to help students become effective and skilled organizers by teaching how to successfully recruit and retain volunteers and develop new leadership.
