Power Summer Camp - Maritimes (August 11 - 14)    Thu Aug 11 to Sun Aug 14, 2011, Nova Scotia, NS

Power Summer Camp - Maritimes
August 11 - 14, 2011
Beaver Bank Scouting Camp, Nova Scotia

Imagine hundreds of youth from the Pacific to the Atlantic and up to the Arctic Circle trained, prepped and ready to take action for their future and our climate. Pretty great huh?

Well, we imagined it earlier this year, and this summer we are making it a reality. Throughout July and August we will be holding Power Summer camps in communities across Canada.

Power Summer will include training in popular education, action & strategy, communications, messaging, campaign planning, and other quintessential organizing skills, while building our understanding of climate justice and how we build a movement to get it. These 3 day, weekend long camps will use participatory, direct education to train the next generation of climate warriors and trainers. We will also work with local organizers to connect these camps to on the ground organizing being done in the area.
