Camp NOW accepting applications

The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change invites is accepting applications to participate in their 6th year summer youth camp, Camp NOW. At Camp NOW, participants will develop and enhance their leadership and conflict reconciliation skills based on Dr. King’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology.  The camp will prepare youth to be influential leaders and change agents serving as catalysts to their peers.

The camp will be held from June 17 through June 28th.

Applicants must be ages 13 – 18.  Every one to five (1-5) applicants must be accompanied by one (1) adult chaperone.  Chaperones are expected to participate in the nonviolence education activities designed specifically for them (separate from the youth), which will benefit them personally and support the youth in their continuing nonviolence learning.  Applications will be reviewed as they are received and participants will be notified if accepted for the camp.

Camp fee is $350, which includes all manuals and training materials, daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and tours to Alabama and other historic sites.
