U. of North Florida Offering ‘Social Justice’ Summer Camp for High School Students

“young adults who want to explore educational and community spaces from racial equity, social justice and activist perspectives”

One can only begin to imagine what the activities would be like at this camp.

Campus Reform reports:

UNF to offer ‘social justice’ summer camp for high schoolers

High school students will attend a virtual “social justice” this summer at the University of North Florida.

The program, “Bridges Summer Camp,” is tailored to “young adults who want to explore educational and community spaces from racial equity, social justice and activist perspectives.” It will be offered from July 5 to July 9 and from July 12 to July 16. Students will participate in the program online from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

In mid-June, the university took down the webpage, but the program’s details are still available via Google’s cache.

The Bridges Summer Camp website further explains that the camp will “create communities of young leaders and future teachers who know that education is an essential element in the fight against racism and oppression.”

A 2019 video features participants’ lessons from the camp, including one student saying that he was impacted when an instructor told him “if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.” Another student enjoyed circle discussions, during which “you can hear everyone’s perspectives on different situations and questions.”

To apply for the program, students had to provide their “race/ethnicity” alongside the high school that they currently attend.

Wow, this is got to be at least half as much fun as Vacation Bible School.
