Camp Up with People (CUWP) is a summer youth development program in Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA that brings together diverse students ages 13 to 18 and utilize the performing arts as a tool to equip young people with life skills to effect positive change in their lives, communities and ultimately the world. CUWP is built on 5 pillars that define our program,

Diversity – Our staff, and campers proudly represent the many countries, cultures, beliefs, orientations, and ethnicities of the world. At Camp Up with People, we strive to celebrate diversity and promote inclusion.

Volunteerism – Our curriculum introduces our campers to ethical volunteerism. Creating a responsibility and understanding of civic duty in their community. While offering a certificate of service for needed high school credit.

Adventure/Regional activities – The CUWP experience is heightened by the adrenaline rush found in the many activities challenging camper to step out of their comfort zones such as, team building high and low ropes courses, Zip-lining, Mountain climbing, and even regional including our weekend visit to the historic nation’s capital.

Global Citizenship – Designed to support the efforts of the United Nations and their Sustainable Development Goals. Our curriculum is created to provide young people with global awareness, and tools to be an active part of betterment.

Arts – Using the performing arts and the many artistic talents of our campers we produce a full-scale musical extravaganza intended to raise awareness of global challenges. Our capstone performance provides a platform of humor, joy, passion, and civility in which we unpack controversial subjects.
