Camp Wellstone - with the Virginia Civic Engagement Table
We are excited to partner with the Virginia Civic Engagement Table to bring this training to Virginia!
Camp Wellstone is open to anyone interested in gaining practical skills in progressive political action. During Camp Wellstone, we provide focus areas (tracks) based on your role in progressive organizing, each with a distinctive curriculum taught by some of the nation's leading experts in grassroots politics and organizing.
Camp Wellstone always takes place over the weekend. The schedule is: 3pm - 9pm Friday, May 13th. 9am - 6:30pm Saturday, May 14th and 9am - 3:30pm Sunday, May 15th.
Registration is now open!
You register by choosing one of three tracks below, that you will stay with throughout the weekend (click the green track names to register!)
- Grassroots Organizer Track: How to win on grassroots organizing issues
- Working on a Campaign Track: How to win progressive campaigns as a campaign worker or volunteer
- Being a Candidate Track: How to run and win a progressive campaign, for those running for office or considering running in the future

The cost to attend is $300. We believe in training everyone, regardless of income, so while the true cost of Camp Wellstone is actually much greater than $300 per person we strive to make our training programs accessible. This fee covers the three days of training, customized materials, and 3 meals during the weekend.
We will have a limited number of scholarships available for this camp. If you cannot afford this fee, please contact Mysti (before registering) to discuss scholarship options.
