WHO WE ARE

Camp Anytown Las Vegas is a youth leadership program that trains students in diversity and inclusivity. Each camp includes the participation of 60-70 high school leaders, and over 35 community volunteers.  Student delegates are referred to the program through the Clark County School District, local faith houses, community organizations, and through personal/self-referral.  Students encounter:

Diversity

Delegates nurture a sense of individual self-worth through recognition of culture, ethnicity, faith/religion, and gender as integral parts of one's identity and it's important role in a multicultural character US society.

Community

Delegates learn about prejudice and discrimination and their efforts within our society and how perspectives shape our community and interactions.

Inclusivity

Delegates encourage the acceptance and appreciation of people from different backgrounds in ways that enhances coexistence, cooperation, and interdependence in a community.

History

Camp Anytown is a nationally recognized, 50 year-old award winning training program for youth in leadership skills, human relations, and diversity.  With its historic roots as part of the NCCJ, ANYTOWN works from the premise that we live in a multicultural society and that young people are the nation’s future.  Therefore, youth need to be sensitized to the experiences of diverse groups if- as decision makers- they are expected to make fair judgments in improving the quality of life for the entire nation regardless of ability, ethnicity, faith/religion, and gender.

 

By direct exposure of participant’s to such differences and by offering them opportunities to work together, greater acceptance may be promoted through better understanding of people’s beliefs, traditions, and behaviors.  Each ANYTOWN serves as a proving ground where individuals can be changed into persons who can deal more effectively with the multicultural society in which we live by learning to create communities that are inclusive and which honor and respect every person.
