IS SCHOLARSHIP MONEY AVAILABLE? 2018-05-07T01:19:15+00:00

Yes. We have funds for those who need financial assistance. However, we do expect student delegates to fund some of the cost as it is important for them to have some responsibility in attending Anytown. In the application process on this site, delegates can indicate their need for financial assistance and why.

WHAT IS ANYTOWN LIKE? 2018-10-16T21:47:29+00:00

The mission of Anytown is to celebrate diversity and reduce bias, bigotry, and prejudice. Programming is done in an experiential, interactive and safe setting where all students, called delegates, are involved.  This is not a classroom or lecture type of environment but rather a unique and structured curriculum where one exercise builds upon another.

Delegates will confront issues regarding stereotypes, disabilities, gender, occupations, faith and religion, body types, sexual orientation, class and privilege.  There is a talent night when the entire camp participates and celebrates each other.

Participants in Anytown unanimously say that the week is profound and life-changing, enabling them to appreciate others in an accepting and understanding fashion.

HOW WILL ANYTOWN HELP ME? 2018-05-07T01:28:33+00:00

You will learn leadership skills to take back to your community and to enrich you for the rest of your life.  Any college or work application that you fill out indicating that you have been to Anytown will be enhanced by this program. Also, each delegate will receive a Community Service Certificate indicating that they experienced 50 hours of education and training.

WHAT BASICS SHOULD I BRING? 2018-05-07T01:28:59+00:00

Once you register, we will give you a list of the basics.  Be sure to bring enough clothes for 6 days.  You will need shower shoes and closed-toe shoes.  You must bring your own bedding (a sleeping bag works great), towels and toiletries. Also, consider bringing a flashlight or headlamp.

WHAT SPECIAL THINGS SHOULD I BRING? 2018-05-07T01:29:22+00:00

One of the special programs during Anytown is “Culture Night” when we share and appreciate our heritages with cultural singing, dancing, clothing, objects and customs.  Please bring whatever you can to share with everyone.  Some examples are quinceanera dresses, native clothing and artifacts, menorahs, kippahs, pictures, music, quotations and readings.  Songs and dances that are part of your culture are also very special to share at Anytown.

We also have a program for sharing and learning about our faiths.  Please bring reference materials and religious objects to share and better understand each other.


We will have a brief informational meeting immediately after the bus leaves.   Please inform the person who brings you to the bus know that they need to allow about 20 minutes for that orientation.
