Published January 1, 2012

The sixth annual Shalom Justice Camp, hosted by the diocese of Toronto, will take place Aug. 19 to 24, 2012, on the scenic riverside campus of Trent University in Peterborough, Ont. This year’s theme is “Uniting Us All: Rural and Urban.”Justice Camp 2012 “will be an excellent opportunity to deepen our commitment, with others in the Anglican Communion,” said Bishop Linda Nicholls of the diocese of Toronto in a press release. “We are called by our baptismal promises to live and work together in community, learning from each other.” A record 100 participants from across Canada will be housed at Peter Gzowski College. Campers will be assigned to small immersion groups and make daily excursions to learn hands-on strategies from local activists and advocacy organizations.The immersion groups’ varied agendas include such issues as food and water safety, immigrants and migrant workers, sustainable agriculture, healthy communities and native realities. The camp is open to anyone older than 16.For more information, go to www.justicecamp.ca
