Welcome to the 17th Annual League of Creative Minds, Summer Camps! LCM summer camps are now being offered in four locations: Stanford, Hillsborough, San Francisco and Berkley. That said, the academic team of teachers, and the original LCM curriculum will remain the same regardless of the various locations.
The League of Creative Minds is an independent academic program where students come together from many different schools, both private and public. Grade levels span from 6th to 12th grade. The League strategic learning model reaches far beyond the scope of what Model UN alone contains, implementing instead a rigorous course international law, world history, economics, policy, and politics.
The League of Creative Minds (LCM) was created to provide an entry way for high-ability middle school and high school students into public policy, international world affairs, leadership roles, public advocacy, diplomacy, investigative journalism, and the inner workings of governments, international organizations, and the United Nations.

The League of Creative Minds firmly stands behind and fully believes that Black Lives Matter. The League of Creative Minds supports the self evident call for human dignity in the US and abroad. LCM strives to cultivate a diverse community of voices to teach delegates about violence, oppression, and racism. Systemic and structural issues in the United States exemplify the opportunity presented before us for an overall Systems Change.
The League of Creative Minds will continue to examine racial discrimination in the United States with the same tenacity as racism elsewhere in the world because Black Lives Matter. The Summer of 2019 every single delegate that came through the LCM summer program at Stanford spent a portion of their summer courses learning about human rights and the inequalities faced by the Black community.
