CAMP LYFE (Liberated Youth For Empowerment)


Camp LYFE will take place at the National Chavez Center in Keene, California July 23-Aug 5, 2023.
Our program is grounded in five core disciplines:



Spoken Word


Visual Arts and Creative Media

Our experienced guest artists work closely with youth to develop their skills and techniques, explore their creativity, and develop their own unique artistic voice.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of young people. Every donation counts towards our goal of raising $500,000 or $10,000 to sponsor each camper and create a transformative experience. Make a contribution today.

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $500K, $10K per camper

Our Approach

We believe in the transformative power of the arts. Our approach is grounded in the belief that young people can be agents of change in their communities. We teach our campers to harness their creativity and imagination to create meaningful work that addresses social issues.


This camp is designed to support young people most impacted by “zero tolerance” policies in schools. Our camp participants are 80% Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, with a commitment to expanding our knowledge of intersectional inclusivity.
