Youth Camp: “Youth in Community”
We invite young people between 13 and 17 years old from around the world to join us for 2 weeks of a full-on community experience at our Children’s Place, accompanied by our team of youth facilitators. Join us as we research how to build trust among one another, as we look into the world and think about what a meaningful response to our global crisis could be, using creative ways to express our passion and joy for the future.
We’ll spend 2 weeks building community, exploring the questions: who are we as young men and women? What are our personal questions and interests? What does friendship mean to us? And crucially, how can we create real trust among each other?
We’ll also come together for a time of political reflection – looking at the world as it is today and thinking together about possible answers to the current global crisis. We’ll work on prospects for how people can live together without any violence, in trust and cooperation, and in relation to nature.
Together, we’ll envision a different future, addressing the question: how could the world look in 30 years if we had the courage and knowledge to make a positive change? And what can we as a young generation do to make it happen?
We will work creatively on all these questions, using theater, dance, poetry and music. As the climax of our camp, we’ll have a final presentation where we’ll show the outcome of our time together.
This year we’ll focus on strengthening the cooperation between the youth groups of several communities and social projects. And as our program overlaps with the international activist gathering “Defend the Sacred,” we will get to know the work of highly inspiring and remarkable peaceworkers from around the world.

The ”Children’s Place” at Tamera
Please bring your own tent if you don’t want to stay with the group, or simply want to have your own space. Otherwise we have a big tent, and usually the participants want to sleep together under the stars in our little forest nearby.
