If you’ve been dying to learn how to perform an abortion on a papaya and have $1,600 to spare, Feminist Camp has got you covered. That may sound like a joke, but Feminist Camp isn’t for poster making, hashtagging Resist on all your Instagrams or even teaching you how to be a better feminist. Instead, campers will learn how to bring feminism into their daily lives and careers.
“It’s a tiny-sized conference,” said the camp’s co-director Carly Romeo. “We bring [participants] around the city to different organizations or companies that are doing feminist work or feminist-adjacent work. And the goal is to demystify the idea of feminist work.”
Michelle Joni is kind of a pro when it comes to fun and games. The party and event planner is captain of the New York City Skipping Club, a counselor at Soul Camp (an “adult sleepaway camp for the soul”) and a teacher at her very own concoction, Preschool Mastermind, a preschool for… you guessed it. But her next feat will be transforming a Bushwick venue into everyone’s favorite summer camp.
