This 2.5 day training, running from 3-9pm Friday, 9am-6:00pm Saturday, and 9am-3:30pm Sunday, combines lectures from highly experienced trainers, stimulating exercises, and interactive simulations. We’re counting on you to organize around issues that matter, help build campaigns for the future, and elect progressive candidates to office.
Camp Wellstone is divided into three tracks:
- Activist track: For people interested in citizen lobbying, issue advocacy, and community organizing, this track provides skills in how to win on issues.
- Campaign track: This track focuses on how to be an effective staff or volunteer member of a winning progressive campaign.
- Candidate track: This is for people who have made the decision to run for office (or are exploring the possibility of running in the near future).
