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!


Summer 2018 — what an incredible summer! 

See our video below for some highlight clips!

 

Hear from our 2018 Commoners about their experience this summer.
