CRS TIMES: CRS '17 Week 7

CRS TIMES: CRS '17 Week 7

This has been one of the most intense weeks at Camp, but one of the most transforming. The campers started functioning better as a community and spoke to each other more freely. The second hiking trip, self-care day, movie night, and the weekly variety program happened this week as well. Read more about the week here.

CRS TIMES: CRS '17 Week 3

With great privilege, campers met Leymah Gbowee, the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winner from Libera. She is known for leading the peace movement, Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, that helped lead to the end of Liberia's Second Civil War. Also, three CRS campers were interviewed live on the radio. It was an exciting week.

One Week Remains until Camp Season 2017 Starts

There's one week left until the 2017 campers arrive in New York City. What's happened so far: staff training, finalizing homestay and travel arrangements, arranging alumni worksite visits (where Campers visit alumni at their work-place and receive a tour), and most of the Campers have met their airfare-travel fundraising goals!
