About Camp

We've designed an immersive learning journey for young leaders and their mentors that guides you from the foundational principles of leadership through to the practical development of impactful social ventures.

By creating immersive classrooms in art galleries, museums, and festivals, we encourage thought-provoking conversations and sensory experiences that unleash the creativity of our young leaders. They passionately ideate and develop projects with the potential to effect profound positive change in their communities and beyond.

Main program activities

The camp program encompasses five distinct types of learning experiences, each tailored to different needs, talents, skills, and levels of introspection.
Thought-Provoking Seminars
Engage in circular seated discussions centered around readings from thought-provoking authors, fostering a deeper understanding of complex topics.
Embodied Leadership Workshops
Inspired by Yemi A.D.'s philosophy that "Knowledge is just a rumor until it lives in the body," these workshops integrate practical exercises that encourage leaders to embody their knowledge authentically.
Small Groups
Teams of 2-3 young leaders and a mentor collaborate to discuss their social ventures, identifying strategies to overcome obstacles they face.
Keynotes & Panels
Participate in interactive discussions at the New York stage of the Melting Pot conference, an event open to guests of the Colours of Ostrava music festival, where ideas meet diverse perspectives.
Dive into inner work with the guidance of experts in mind, body, and soul, including breath-work, sound-healing, movement, body language, and more, to align and enhance personal well-being.
