Thanks for a great Peace Camp Houston 2017!
Remember Peace Camp Houston 2016?
In 2016, six exciting weeks of Peace Camp were held. Each session had 25-30 participants, including 2-3 teens. About half were on scholarships. The basic theme was “Equal Rights for Everyone” along with understanding “The Beloved Community”. Over 20 volunteers donated their skills to make this project a success. The program focused on developing inner peace through yoga, meditation, and nature walks. Special guests were an important part of the daily schedule. Local activists such as Cherry Stenwender discussed racism and prejudice, Noah Rattler shared about his work with the homeless, and PK McCary told about community organizing and development. Music, including a drum circle, added fun and rhythm to the day. Crafts using many recycled materials also were favorite activities. Topics such as bullying, coping constructively with anger, reducing stress and the importance of compromise were also a part of the curriculum.
