Urban Service Camp
Campers (13-18 years old)
YouthServe’s Urban Service Camp is a five day residential summer camp in downtown Birmingham. We bring together a diverse group of youth, ages 13 -18, to get to know each other as well as our city.
Get ready to settle in at the YWCA downtown and take a tour of historic Birmingham, play play at Railroad Park, swim at the YMCA Downtown Youth Center, play basketball at night, have scavenger hunts, and participate in artistic expression workshops.
We will also participate in social change workshops that will deepen your understanding of your community. We will discuss issues such as food deserts, prejudice and privilege. Your Urban Service Camp experience will nudge you out of your comfort zone, and empower you to be a creative and effective leader.
2014′s registration will open soon!
