VRG recently received information about a vegetarian camp for kids that focuses on non-violence and social justice:
I read your blog and wanted to tell you of another camp that our kids just joined this year. They said that it was the best camping experience they had ever had. The camp was called Vegetarian Ahimsa Camp (all the food was vegan, except some milk available in the morning for some children). It is an overnight camp for ages 9-13 (unless an 8-year-old has an older sibling already attending) and incorporates Youth Leadership Camps Canada counselors. It is recognized by the Toronto Vegetarian Association and the site is Ennismore Ontario near Pigeon Lake.
Fantastic – they focus on non-violence and social justice. Kids learn and talk about what veganism means in fun ways. They also do yoga in the mornings and meditation in the evenings. And then.. they have all the fun camp things too: canoeing, hiking, high and low ropes, rock climbing…
You can visit their website at:http://www.towardsahimsa.com/.
