About

Camp Take Notice (CTN) is a democratically self-governed community of homeless people in Ann Arbor, Michigan. During the past four years, the camp has been tenting on various tracts of land, surviving by way of will and ingenuity, of no expense to taxpayers and with the support of many local churches. Campers are strongly encouraged to be sober and dedicated to the well-being of the community.

As of June 22nd, 2012, CTN was evicted from their last site. Of the 70 campers that were living there upon eviction, 12 are housed, 13-17 sleep in a shelter, while the rest are scattered across the city, routinely being shoved out from under bridges and off of park benches.

The camp is modeled after the tent cities of Seattle.
