The 2019 LLCEC will take place from Sunday, July 21 through Friday, July 26, 2019 at either BCTC Cooper Campus or a college partner in central Kentucky; during the week of camp (Monday, July 22 through Thursday, July 25), the LLCEC sets out to provide a schedule of amazing and diverse courses, workshops and projects designed to spark interest, ignite a love for learning, inspire critical thinking and action all while facilitate healthy mentorships and providing safe and liberating spaces for self-expression and empowerment.
