A Life-Changing Experience: ‘Camp Pride’ for LGBT Youth Activism Kicks Off This Week, July 17-22, 20

This week in Nashville, Tenn., 70 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and ally students from colleges and universities across the nation come together for Campus Pride's annual social-justice leadership academy, aptly called Camp Pride.

The only camp of its kind, the summer leadership academy was started in 2007 by Campus Pride, the leading educational organization for LGBT and ally college students and campus groups, and it has quickly become the premier national training ground for LGBT and ally youth activism. The camp, which also includes an "LGBT Professional Academy" for LGBT faculty and advisors, is hosted this year on the campus of Vanderbilt University from July 17 to 22, 2012.
