1.What is Campaign Bootcamp, you ask?
We’re an innovative training organisation that runs year long accelerators to give activists the skills, confidence and network they need to run effective campaigns, and we are running applications for the next TWO rounds of bootcamp in May and July.
2. Will I be able to afford it?Yes! We don’t believe anyone should be out of pocket to come on bootcamp. This year we have over 40 scholarships on offer (our largest amount yet!), this means free or partially covered places for almost 70% of our applicants.The scholarships cover demographics that may otherwise struggle to get the training they need to thrive in the campaigning world. There are specific scholarships for black and minority ethnic campaigners, migrants & refugees, disabled campaigners, feminist campaigners, mental health campaigners, environmental campaigners, young campaigners, activists form Syria, Lebanon & Palestine and much more!There are also travel bursaries available to and from the venue. To find out more about the scholarships available, check out my blog on it here: http://www.

3. What’s it like?Before working here, I went on a Bootcamp last year on a BME scholarship and I feel really confident that it’s a great experience. For me, the most invaluable part of bootcamp is the community you form with your fellow bootcampers – it really helps you get out of your usual campaign bubble!
The programme starts with a week-long residential of training at an accessible venue just outside London, which is followed by a year of mentoring, further training days and community support. To find out more about Bootcamp, click here: www.campaignbootcamp.
