Children’s Summer Camp – Creative projects & discovering talents
Description: The Tent of Nations project seeks to bring people of various cultures together to build bridges of understanding, reconciliation, and peace. The long-term goal of The Tent of Nations is to prepare people to make positive contributions to their future and society through the values of understanding, tolerance, and respectful coexistence. These goals are achieved through education awareness campaigns, youth empowerment, and work camps. The Tent of Nations is located on a piece of land southwest of Bethlehem 10 km away from the city near the village of Nahalin. Since 1991, the land is under threat of confiscation by the Israeli military. We are still in the Israeli courts defending our rights to the land until today – 25 years. Still we believe in justice.
Type of Work: This camp will be held for local children from the Bethlehem region to take part in arts, music, dance, theatre, sports, and games on daily basis. This will also be a chance for children to meet volunteers from different countries and cultures. Children will learn about their own rural heritage in a peaceful location and how to be connected with the land. The children summer camp will be educational, promoting tolerance and peace and challenging prejudice, but most importantly it will be a chance for the children to have a break from the politics that overwhelm their childhood.
