Parents in Portland, Oregon can now send their kids to a free social justice summer camp founded by anarchists.

A group called Budding Roses, which was founded as a project of the Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Foundation, will hold a free two-week summer camp this month open to students in 4th through 8th grades.

registration portal indicates students at the camp will explore “social justice issues, youth leadership, arts activism, games and more!”


The camp’s website adds that the camp was inspired by “global examples of mutual aid and popular education projects,” such as “the Black Panthers free breakfast program” {snip}


A “Police Abolition Activity” and “White Supremacy Reflection Activity” are listed within the Budding Roses’ curriculum as well.

The group appears to hold this camp annually, with Budding Roses utilizing churches, city parks and taxpayer money to help it develop the next generation of social justice activists {snip}
