Camp Wellstone is for anyone interested in gaining practical skills in progressive political action. During Camp Wellstone, we provide focus areas (tracks) based on your role in progressive organizing, each with a distinctive curriculum taught by some of the nation's leading experts in grassroots politics and organizing.
Camp Wellstone always takes place over the weekend. The schedule is: 3pm - 9pm Friday, April 22nd. 9am - 6:30pm Saturday, April 23rd. 9am - 3:30pm Sunday, April 24th.
Registration is now open!
You register by choosing one of three tracks below, that you will stay with throughout the weekend (click the green track names to register!)
- Grassroots Organizer Track: How to win on grassroots organizing issues
- Working on a Campaign Track: How to win progressive campaigns as a campaign worker or volunteer
- Being a Candidate Track: How to run and win a progressive campaign, for those running for office or considering running in the future

The cost to attend is a registration fee of either $150 or $300. We believe in training everyone, regardless of income – so while the true cost of Camp Wellstone is actually greater than $300, we strive to keep our trainings affordable for progressive leaders at all income levels – and we look to you to decide what’s fair, based on your personal circumstances. If you cannot pay either of these fees, please contact Mysti (before registering) to discuss scholarship options. No matter the level you choose, the benefits are the same (training, customized materials, one of our books, and 3 meals during the weekend).
Training Location and Details
Camp Wellstone will be held at Seattle Pacific University. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging accommodations.
