Second Annual Summer Camp Begins in Beit Ommar

6 July 2011

The Center for Freedom and Justice, a close partner of the Palestine Solidarity Project, is currently hosting its second annual summer camp for 150 youths, age 8-14, in the Beit Ommar area. Campers have so far participated in two of the three weeks of the camp, and have engaged in a wide range of activities, including traditional Palestinian dance, arts and crafts, drama, music, sports, and nonviolence training.

Last years summer camp, named the Freedom Flotilla Summer Camp by the camp counselors, had over 100 participants. The camp combined educational, recreational and cultural activities, including sports, English lessons, traditional Palestinian dance classes and workshops on a wide range of topics, including settlement expansion, Israel’s “separation barrier,” international law, conflict resolution and human rights.
