Public ContentAnyone can view this post

August 13-19 - People Camp, a well-established program of Friends for a Nonviolent World, is a week-long experience of cooperation, community living, and exploration of ideas and issues. It will take place at Northern Pines near Park Rapids, Minnesota. Northern Pines is a comfortable and accessible facility on a lake that is suitable for boating and swimming.

This year’s theme is “WHAT DO WE DO NOW? Organizing for Resistance in a Changing Political Climate.” Workshops and children’s programs take place in the morning, with interest groups, music, recreation and fellowship the rest of the day. The work of preparing meals, washing dishes, caring for children, and keeping the camp clean is shared cooperatively by this self-governing community. A great experience for all ages!
