Too often we hear the phrase, "not in MY backyard." Our interfaith, service-based summer camp experience is designed to open the eyes of campers to both the beauty of different Faith Traditions and the harsh reality of poverty “in our own backyard” of Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Campers experience a poverty simulation, serve at various agencies throughout the city, interview homeless neighbors, explore Christian, Jewish, Unitarian Universalist, Muslim and Baha’i faith traditions. There is also a surprise mission immersion experience.
