Camp STARR (Students Talking About Race Relations)
June 12-14, 2015 in Oberlin, Ohio

What is Camp STARR?                                                                                                         

Camp STARR is an intense and interactive 3-day retreat for high school students.  The goal of Camp STARR is for students to explore race relations in America:  past, present, and future. In 2015, we will explore African American history and race conflict from the Middle Passage to the present.  Camp STARR participants will be challenged physically and emotionally to better understand themselves and the world in which they live. Students will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of their personal leadership styles and racial identity
  • Participate in simulations and activities that depict issues of American racial injustice
  • Explore local landmarks, museums, and the campus of Oberlin College
  • Partake in teambuilding activities at Common Grounds Ropes Course
  • Participate in Oberlin’s Juneteenth Celebration







When and where is Camp STARR?

081.JPGCamp STARR will be Friday, June 12 - Sunday, June 14, 2015, on the campus of Oberlin College, about 40 minutes west of Cleveland. Oberlin College was a key institution in the struggle against slavery and in promoting equality and is a perfect venue for our camp! Participants and staff will reside at Lord/Saunders, the Afrikan Heritage House, on campus. Accompanied by The Diversity Center Staff and select counselors, students will be transported via bus from Cleveland to Oberlin leaving Friday morning and returning Sunday afternoon.
