Day camp planned

Too bad my kids are too young.

A Human Rights Camp for children 11-13 years old will be held at Shepherd University July 27, 28 and 29.

The camp is free and sponsored by the Children’s Rights Coalition, Shepherd University, Amnesty International
and Amnesty International Upper Potomac chapter.

The camp is described as

"...designed to sensitively educate children on international
human rights and lead them through a fulfilling and fun process of
human rights activism. Our curriculum is largely based on the AI Kids
Education Package, Human Rights Watch’s Children’s Rights Resources and
the undergraduate course in human rights offered at Shepherd. The camp
staff will include a local educator, an attorney/human rights professor
and several seasoned human rights activists."

Not only is this a great opportunity for the children, but our camp is
the first of it’s kind! It is being followed as a prototype for future
camps, possibly conducted regionally throughout the United States."
