Episode 8: Democracy, HIstory, and Camp

Dec 15, 2021 | Podcast | 0 comments

We’re getting a little historical and a little political this episode, and we’re not sorry.

Camp is rooted in democratic process – one built on participation, shared decision making, and shared outcomes. The space we create has the potential to actually impact dialogue and discourse, values and ideas.

If you’ve ever wondered where and how camp started, we’ll go there too, tracing the path back to one of the first camps and the island it started on.
