As we begin #Summer115, it is important we all appreciate how fortunate we are to be part of such a wonderful Camp.
We sometimes take for granted our blessings and the many rights we have. That said, there are still many in this country who don’t have access to them.
We stand in unity with those who are angry, hurt, and grieving, especially for those who have lost their lives to violence.
We all have a role to play in not just calling for change, but in leading by example.
The Susquehannock experience plays an important role in helping to address racism and violence:
At camp, we teach empathetic leadership
At camp, we teach social awareness
At camp, we teach inclusion, belonging and community
At camp, everyone is valued, included, belongs, and has a voice
Camp is for everyone!
Everyone needs camp – but systemic racism, racial injustice, and economic inequality can make it tough for everyone to have access to high-quality and safe camp experiences. Susquehannock wants to make a difference, and we promise we will continue our efforts to give the gift of camp to campers from all backgrounds.
We must all do our part individually and collectively to end racism and violence.
