Camper alum Allen Ellis created a beautiful film about NBTSC. It’s not new, but it still feels like
NBTSC and we still love it enough to post it right here front and center:

Not Back to School Camp: A Glance Within from Allen Ellis on Vimeo. (Click these links to leave the nbtsc site and go watch the film in a bigger size.)



“I signed up for camp hoping it would change my life. It didn’t. But it gave me the tools and resources, and most importantly, the inspiration, to go out and change my own life, and stop expecting other people to drop epiphanies in my lap, or change my life for me.”
