Holy Ground: Community Organizing Camp
August 12th-16th 5:30pm-7:30pm
University Lutheran Church of Hope
“Holy Ground: Community Organizing Camp” provides an opportunity for children to learn the basics of faith-based community organizing through play, strategy, and story-telling.
Students build their own neighborhood out of cardboard boxes and learn about what makes a neighborhood flourish while gathering for singing, conversation, and creativity. Throughout the week an issue will confront the neighborhood and the students will need to strategize, build power, and seek a solution to protect their community. We will explore the ways in which Jesus’ ministry, grounded in love, was able to transform communities and Each night will begin with a shared meal, storytelling, and singing.
“Holy Ground: Community Organizing Camp” is for students in Kindergarten-5th Grade.
