"This camp has made me realize that I can make a difference... and that unless people individually realize that they can make a difference, then work together, nothing's going to happen-- we can't leave it to the government. It has to be us. And it has to be the youth. Because we are the future. And we have the most power. And we have the most optimism. And we have the most energy to go out and do it."
-- Amy Gregory, Yes camper
Go to the pristine countryside of Minnesota for an intriguing talk with some of the most hopeful and motivated young people today. YES! Camp, sponsored by Youth for Environmental Sanity, is a one-week gathering of young men and women who sound a call for action against the ravages of society on the environment. Hear their uplifting message and strategy for change -- both ecological and societal -- as round table discussions, dramatic performance, perpersonal reflections, and heartfelt attitudes reveal a vigorous and conscious generation.
