Joaquin Phoenix will soon be teaming up with Be More Heroic and the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding to produce CAMP: The Documentary – a film that will follow twenty diverse teens as they journey to California to attend a leadership summer camp next month.

GLAAD reports:

Camp more[Camp MORE’s] purpose is to work with teens in an intimate setting and inspire societal change and progress by starting with the youth.  Viewers will watch as the campers participate in experiential workshops, resolve conflicts, overcome personal challenges, form friendships, build confidence and ultimately become compassionate leaders and heroes.

An Indiegogo campaign was launched last week to help raise $40,000 for the film’s production costs.
