Peace Liberation & The Arts Summer Camp 2022
Our Theme: Healing With A Purpose
Our Dates: July 25 - August 12, 2022
Monday - Friday 9:30am - 3:00pm
Our Space: Chester Friends Meetinghouse
The Peace, Liberation & The Arts (PL&A) Summer Camp provides a multi-week experience for youth, ages 12 - 17. In order to foster peace and liberation for Chester youth, we must address at least three circles – the personal, the family and the larger community. PL&A Summer Camps include goals that seek to impact each of these important circles of influence. We recognize that peace making is an inside to outside job and that building strong young activators of liberation requires an inner strength and balance that must be nurtured. We must also acknowledge and provide education about the systems of oppression and discrimination that hold communities like Chester in cycles of poverty and violence. Therefore, our approach provides tools for inner reflection, historical and current events education, skill-building, artistic expression and opportunities to learn and serve through cultural exchange.
Covid-19 Guidelines: We will abide by the CDC Covid-19 policy in addition to masking indoors except while eating. Our policy is subject to change in the event that Covid-19 cases rise in Pennsylvania. The CDC Covid-19 tracker will be the baseline. Masks and at-home test kits will be available to all staff and campers.
