April 22, 2021

As you continue to grow your camps to become more inclusive than ever before, it’s important to educate yourself and your staff on racism and the effects of it on your campers and your staff. As a pillar within your community, it’s imperative that your organization does everything within its power to root out racism within your organization and identify the ways in which racism is entrenched in your programming. 

ACTIVE has partnered The Summer Camp Society and Simone Gamble, founder of OAAARS, a BIPOC consultancy that provides social justice-centered training and education, to present an informative webinar that discusses and educates you on the seven ways in which racism is planted in programming. In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Microagressions - what are they and how to stop using them
  • Respectability Politics - what it is and the impact it has on campers and staff members
  • Representation Deficit - why it is important to have representation for BIPOCs
  • Mission/Vision/Traditions - how racism can be rooted in each
  • Philanthropy Mindset - what is and is not appropriate when it comes to raising funds
  • Bias Discipline Practice - preventing double standards against BIPOCs

It’s important to ensure you are aware of how your organization’s culture unifies everyone around you. Your organization plays a crucial role in showing how to properly foster diversity and inclusion.

Watch the educational and enlightening webinar to learn how to root out racism in your camps and programs. 

Set yourself up for success.
