Pine Ridge Quaker Workcamp

Wed, 07/19/2017 (All day) - Wed, 08/02/2017 (All day)

 

Bring your own gifts as we continue William Penn’s call to Create the Peaceable Kingdom. Become a part of the Quaker presence in Pine Ridge, SD this summer. 

For two weeks, we camp and live in community on the Rez, share stories and meals while developing an understanding beyond the books. The relationships formed inspire us to become more aware of life on the Rez and opportunities to do what we can to promote greater justice for the people who continue to live with broken promises and treaty violations. The work projects are focused on building for the future while honoring sacred traditions.

This is a great way to connect—within ourselves as we work through assumptions and discomforts—and with the world around us.  We gain new insights and perspectives about what can be done, what should be done, and what is ours, individually and collectively, to do. 

Cost: $1550/person for 2 weeks, or $850 for 1 week. This covers all expenses from pick up to drop-off at Rapid City Airport.  We strive to make this trip accessible to all, so please contact us if interested.

All ages are welcome. Youth under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to sign up, please contact Brad Ogilvie at bogilvielmft@gmail.com or call 301-257-5348.
