  • Mission:
  • The mission of Acta Non Verba is to elevate life in East Oakland through sustainable urban farming and environmental stewardship.

  • Overview:
  • Camp ANV's ultimate goal is to inspire campers to explore nature and find empowerment through outdoor education . We actively strive toward a better future for Oakland's youth.Our day camp programs take the children to the beach and mountains. They learn to fish and camp and above all learn what is possible outside the neighborhoods they rarely leave. Onsite, at our Community Center, the quarter-acre organic farm is planned, planted, and harvested by youth in grades K-8. The farm’s produce is offered to area residents at below market rates, and 100% of the proceeds are placed into individual savings accounts to support participants’ higher education. Not only do we value outdoor education- but want to inspire the youths to reach higher and use their savings accounts to go to college and to grow up and mentor others.

  • History:
  • Since our founding by Kelly Carlisle in 2010, Camp ANV has inspired over 3,500 local, at-risk youth and families to focus on nutrition, sustainable living, and physical activities that promote wellness. During our 8-week summer camp, not only have we built in 9 hours per week of age appropriate training on our quarter acre farm; we also take two overnight camping trips visiting local farms and regional parks.These trips are a highlight for the children; most of whom have not experienced any thing like this.Camp ANV brings the neighborhood youth together around outdoor learning activities. Whether it is learning conservation, beekeeping or a hike and camping trip, we want to not only engage our participants, but influence them toward a healthy lifestyle. We believe in a better future for Oakland's youth. In the five years of our operation, the community of East Oakland has positively been affected by the experience of the children and families, the engagement of community elders in the project, and a willingness to incorporate local grown produce into their diet. The work of ANV is now part of a greater movement in Oakland to strengthen the voice of minorities in the food system and to target Oakland's need for fresh food from within.
