THE STORY:

Hello! My name is Gabby. I am about to turn 17 years old, and I would really love to make it to YEA Camp this year; it is my last chance! I have been vegan for almost two years now, and I would really love the opportunity to learn some activism skills, and spend time with other kids near my age who are passionate like me! I would be attending YEA Camp with animal rights being my main focus, but I am also very passionate about the equality and well-being of everyone, no matter their skin tone, gender, who they love, or what species they are. I am excited to come with an open mind and hear what others have to say. I'm sure that I am going to learn a lot, and that I will leave with a better understanding of other issues going on in the world. I truly enjoy learing about things going on around me, and finding new ways to help make the world a better place! Please read below to learn more about YEA Camp and all that they do! Thanks. :)

This fundraiser is for campers who are raising funds to contribute toward their tuition to attend YEA Camp this summer on a scholarship. Each camper will create a profile page explaining why they want to attend camp.


Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a unique and inspiring summer leadership program for youth 12-17 who want to make a difference in the world. At a week-long sleep-away program in a beautiful camp setting, YEA campers choose an issue of importance to them (for example, some have chosen climate change, racism, homophobia, homelessness, or animal rights) and they build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take action on that issue once they get home. Campers also build lifelong friendships between youth with similar interests in bettering their community and society. Youth who have participated in our programs report that the camp was one of the most fun, memorable and life-changing experiences they have had, and, with YEA’s support, many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, organize a call-in to Congress, and attend hearings to comment about important community issues. Check out our website www.yeacamp.org to learn more about this unique program.

YEA Camp is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Instutite and all donations will be processed by them
