ME to WE’s summer Take Action Camp helps
parents raise kids who care and act

At ME to WE, we believe that you’re never too young to change the world. All you need is the confidence, knowledge and tools to do it. For more than two decades we’ve been working with young people to empower them to make a difference—lighting a spark that we believe is already inside each and every young person. Take Action Camp is a leadership camp that brings together everything kids love about overnight summer camp (new friends, new experiences and exciting challenges) and combines it with a unique experience that gives campers the inspiration and skills to make a difference in the world around them.

It’s never too early to start on the amazing journey to become a change-maker. ME to WE was created by young people for young people with programming that makes doing good doable.

Meet the first ME to WE change-maker

At just 12 years old, Craig Kielburger decided that he wanted to make the world a better place. He felt powerless at first, taking on a challenge as massive as child labor, but when he reached out to his classmates, he immediately found allies. What started as a group of twelve 12-year-olds grew into a movement. Watch his story.

 


We employees

Our team

ME to WE summer camp staff are not your everyday camp counselors. They are highly trained in youth leadership, public speaking and action planning, touring the world each year to work with young people through schools and community outreach. They work with the unique strengths of every individual youth to help them identify, develop and activate their passions.


 

Our programming

Take Action Camp programs are anchored in our WE Schools program, which is used and trusted by school boards around the world as a template for social issues awareness and service-learning.

Programming examples:

WE Villages Walk: Campers are assigned a community member’s profile to learn about the five pillars of WE Villages.

Digital Citizenship: An examination of how the digital world changes our offline lives, and how it can be a tool to create change.

Leaving a Legacy: Campers reflect on the mark they want to make on the world and collaborate to build a shared vision of their legacies.

World of 10: Estimation and visual representation are used to examine local and global inequalities. This activity was created by Canadian NGO World Vision.


Focusing on your child’s strengths

Whether your child is an athlete, an artist, a math whiz or a gamer, Take Action Camp helps them discover their strengths and how to use them to do good in the world. We help campers discover their best selves. Our small, intimate setting ensures that staff can get to know each and every camper and help them understand their individual strengths and talents.

 

Learning through playing

What would camp be without a campfire, singalongs, outdoor activities and some friendly competition? Each week of summer camp, campers compete in the Minga Games (our version of a mini-Olympics) for a chance to take home the gold!
