Camp “I Have a Dream”

Denny’s Blueprint, Camp I Have a Dream, serve youth of the Dheisha and Jalazone refugee camps, near Bethlehem, Palenstine and Ramallah, Palestine (respectively), with a week of seminars and workshops that teach alternative methods of activism, civic engagement, and non-violent resistance. The programs are targeted towards 10-16 year olds, a demographic that is out of school for the summer, largely unemployable, living in their most formative years, and the leaders of tomorrow. The summer camps combine a series of workshops ranging from leadership in sports led by Peace Players International and Basketball PAL, to online activism led by facilitators and bloggers from Soliya Connect, to college prep seminars by counselors from Bir Zeit University, to self-expression through art and photography, to demos in non-violence protest.
