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!

Check out our 2017 commoners!

What a special summer! To the Commoner Class of 2017: We love you and we will see you soon!
