Are you considering a run for office? Want to learn more about running a campaign? Future citizen activist?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, you should consider heading on over to good ol' Durham, NC the weekend of June 19th-21st. Camp Wellstone is coming to town!
Camp Wellstone is one of the training programs developed by Wellstone Action, a "national center for training and leadership development in the progressive movement." This highly-regarded training is available in three tracks: Citizen Activist, Working on a Campaign, Being a Candidate.
Fee structure is on a sliding scale, based on what you can afford to pay, no questions asked: $200, $100, or $50. No matter what you pay, the training is the same. Price includes 3 meals and a copy of the training manual for your particular track.
Training will be held at The Solution Center, a top-dollar facility.
(As an aside, if the term "progressive" gives you pause, not to worry. Camp Wellstone is solid political training no matter what your ideological stripe: I'm not a "progressive" and I plan to attend, one of my "non-progressive" friends is planning to attend for a second time.)
