Camp Wellstone: Cleveland ,Ohio

Camp Wellstone: Cleveland, Ohio
3/10 - 3/12/06
Registration for Camp Wellstone Cleveland is now open!


Camp Wellstone is a training program that teaches progressives how to win on issues and elect good candidates. We use a distinctive approach to politics, based on Paul Wellstone's success at integrating grassroots organizing, electoral organizing, progressive public policy and ethical leadership.

The training is highly interactive, combining exercises, lectures, and simulations over the course of 2.5 days. Camp runs Friday from 2:30pm-9:00pm, Saturday from 9:00am-6:00pm, and Sunday from 9:00am-3:00pm. We keep you busy the whole time! The exact location of each camp will be announced in the coming weeks.

Camp Wellstone is divided into three tracks:

  • Candidate track. This is for people who have made the decision to run for office.
  • Campaign track. This track focuses on how to be an effective staff or volunteer member of a winning progressive campaign.
  • Citizen activist track. For people interested in citizen lobbying, issue advocacy, and community organizing, this track provides skills in how to win on issues.
The cost is $75 or just $35 for students, low-income, or unemployed participants. We are not able to guarantee your space for the the camp unless payment is received 2 weeks prior to the starting date. Camp participants are responsible for their own accommodations.

Thanks for posting this, Cindy. I wasn't familiar with the group but have now signed up to receive information from it. Do you have any direct experience with the Camp?

Interesting. I didn't realize they took that show on the road.

Not being overly familiar with either, how does CW differ from the training offered by DFA?

Here are links to both curriculums details:

I don't have any experience with either. I signed up for the Camp Wellstone info before I became pregnant. Camp Wellstone came highly recommended to me by a graduate. At the minimum, both would be great networking events.

DFA training is in Columbus this June.

Thanks for posting this info on your blog. My local peace & justice group may want to send somebody.
