Camp Anytown is a nationally recognized, award-winning, 45 year-old 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 learn and 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.
