Saint Leo University’s Social Justice Summer Camp offers a fun and stimulating experience for rising juniors and seniors to get hands on working with the community partners on projects related to freedom, justice, equality, sustainability, peace, and fairness. Enjoy life in the residence hall during your stay at Saint Leo’s beautiful lakeside, where you will join other campers for meals, movies, and a variety of other evening activities. The camp is taught by faculty with extensive experience in the social work field and with a host of community experts that will lead you through on-site tasks related to human rights, social, economic, and environmental justice.

Saint Leo University’s Social Justice Summer Camp provides students a chance to learn, discuss, and apply their knowledge through the creation of a photo-voice project. Students will spend the week volunteering in various community settings exploring different aspects of social justice.
