What’s In Your Duffel? Dealing with Our “Stuff” This Summer at Camp

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone

We come to camp with more than just luggage, and this year’s challenges will add weight. We create space for everything at camp, including grief and its accompanying growth. Moving forward doesn’t happen without honoring loss and embracing possibility, and it’s a real gift to our communities to build our tools for living within that discomfort, offering true support for the weighty moments, and sharing the weight of feelings. In this session, we’ll learn from past examples of people and societies that have taken the aftermath of tragedy to build exciting, imaginative new ways of being in the world, and we’ll dream up ways of doing that in our own communities this summer, from art projects to text study and beyond.
