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!


Help us fight hate, and build bridges.

We are changing the climate of middle schools in the Bay Area to be more inclusive, no matter what identity you may have.

the world doesn’t just get better on its own. it takes effort and resources.

let’s do this.
