Apply For Camp

Summer Mentorship

Due to the ever evolving and always uncertain situation surrounding Covid-19, we have decided to NOT hold a camp this year. While we hope to not be physically distancing all summer the likelihood that we will not be able to gather in large groups is high and in the meantime we are unable to meet physically with our volunteer base which makes planning camp difficult.

In Liu of a physical camp, we are working on a virtual programing for this summer. More details on programming will continue to roll out over the next few weeks. Make sure you are signed up for a newsletters to stay in the loop. In the meantime, if you are interested in signing up for the Y'all Rock Summer Mentorship Program, please fill out the form below
