Students will participate in Community Justice Camp, an adult, residential learning experience being held at McMaster University (and across the region) from May 9-14, 2010, developing their knowledge of and skills for community development and social justice ministries. Camp will use a wide array of learning methods: plenary workshops; panel discussion; immersion experiences including site visits, interpersonal encounters, hands-on activities, participants' presentations; corporate worship; and personal and small group spiritual reflection. Students will take part in one of eight immersion experiences under the themes of: aboriginal justice, building neighbourhoods, empowering communities/coalition building, environmental justice, food security, housing, poverty, and welcoming the "stranger." In addition to participation, campers, students will write and submit two short papers: a theoretical engagement with the assigned text [Karen Lebacqz, Justice in an Unjust World] and a personal integration paper.
