us as we build pressure and momentum in stopping strip mining and other
exploitative resource extraction in Appalachia. This Summer Action
Camp is the place to learn new skills, expand on ones you already have;
strengthen ties, meet new friends and get ready for bigger events later
in the year.

can bet the types of workshops offered will range from mountaintop
removal 101, non-violent civil disobedience, to campaign and community
organizing, science and SMCRA (Surface Mine Control and Reclamation
Act), and Appalachian community economics. In addition, there is a
training-for-trainers track. Expect direct action to be part of this
camp as well, though participation is not required for camp attendance.

Mountain Justice welcomes parents, kids, families, and people at all ages and stages of life. For the past few years, MJ camp and our other events have had a physical space and a crew of people we’ve called the Kid Collective—loving and experienced child care givers and educators, armed with books, crafts, toys, games, and quiet space! Please think about bringing your little ones. Please contact erin(AT)mountainjustice(DOT)org if you plan to bring kids, so we can get more details, give you more info, and prepare as best as possible to make this a great event for your family!

The final schedule will be released later. The registration form is now on-line. To be notified when these come out, sign up for our News and Announcement List.
Registration fees will be $20 minimum plus $15/day, or $150 for the
duration of camp. This includes all workshop activities, three meals a
day and a place to sleep. No one will be turned away for the lack of
funds–scholarships are available.

If you need a ride to camp or can offer one, post at our Rideboard.
