Ōtaki Summer Camp is a three day event from 20-23 January for young people with an interest in politics, justice, anti-racism, equality and the environment.
 
Ōtaki Summer Camp was born in 2017 in an effort to revive the long tradition of political summer camps in New Zealand – from the annual student congresses in the Marlborough Sounds from the 1940s to ‘70s, to a series of influential political youth conferences in Ōtaki in the ‘70s.
 
With global instability and climate anxiety on the rise, opportunities like this – for young people to connect with others who care about the big issues – are more important than ever. The camp involves three days of politics, discussion, speakers, music, bush, rivers and sea, in the beach community of Ōtaki, north of Wellington – with a focus this year on climate and housing. Last year’s speakers included Behrouz Boochani, John Campbell, and Laura O’Connell Rapira.
 
Ōtaki Summer Camp is aimed at 17 to 30-year-olds. If you’re interested in attending, or know people who might be, please spread the word. Discounted early bird tickets are available until 20th December. The correct URL for Otaki Summer Camp is https://otakisummercamp.com/
