Justice Camp is a week-long immersion experience focused around a specific social justice issue, and reflected upon in the light of Biblical study and prayer. This year’s Justice Camp theme is poverty. The program is going to “transform unjust structures” by addressing the issues around economical, spiritual, and physical poverty.

In this video, Justice Camp Co-chair Katie Puxley talks about how many people avoid getting involved with social justice issues because they believe their voices do not have an impact. Becoming involved with Justice Camp, she says, gives people the opportunity to realize this potential. Justice Camp is an initiative supported by the Partners in Mission and Ecojustice Committee. Former camps include Environment Justice Camp, held in Victoria, B.C., in 2007, and Advocacy Justice Camp held in Ottawa, Ont., in 2006.
