camp common ground:

A summer camp that brings racially and economically diverse middle schoolers together. We equip them with the leadership, social-emotional, and cultural competencies that they’ll use to develop meaningful relationships with each other. And we have so much fun!


Watch the video from our recent event:

a path to school desegregation in Oakland

This event featured:

  • An introduction from Camp Common Ground Directors, Ron and Zach, about the state of segregation in Oakland.
  • Panel discussion with community leaders and policy makers, such as Oakland City Council Member Abel Guillen, Oakland Unified School Board Member and Vice President Jumoke Hinton-Hodge, and Principal of Gateway Middle School Aaron Watson
