What is Campaign Bootcamp?

If you're fired up about creating positive change and want to learn how to run thoughtful and powerful campaigns, then Campaign Bootcamp is for you. Bootcamp starts with a week-long residential training, which is followed by a year of further training events, mentoring and community support.

It isn’t like your average training. It’s a fun, immersive, interactive experience where you get to try everything you’re learning. Bootcamp is designed to give you the skills, community and confidence you need to run powerful campaigns.

Costs and Scholarships

It costs £3500 to attend Bootcamp, which covers all the costs - all the money we receive goes back into making Bootcamp possible and as good as it can be; we don't make a profit. 

However, we know that most activists can't pay this and we therefore offer scholarships for those who can't afford the training.
