About Camp Harambee

Update-Tuesday 9:30pm: We are watching outdoor air quality indexes for Wednesday and may reduce time spent training outdoors. Youth participants should bring indoor gym shoes/soccer flats in case we need to move to the gym.

Camp Harambee is a free three-day soccer training designed to celebrate the diversity of the Twin Cities soccer community. High school-aged boys and girls will participate in fun, high-level trainings and receive support from experienced coaches in the metro area. The camp also provides a chance for young coaches of color (ages 19-25) to volunteer, be mentored and support their younger peers.

Coaches and players from Minnesota United Football Club (MNUFC) will offer an academy-style training experience for participants on the final day of camp. A neighborhood-wide celebration with food trucks, live DJ, community art, and interactive games will follow. Blue Cross Blue Shield will also be on site with a mobile vaccination van for ages 12+.

Camp Harambee is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield and MNUFC in partnership with Hiawatha Academies, Augsburg University, Like A Girl, and studio in/visible.
