Description: The Tent of Nations farm seeks to bring people of various cultures and countries together to build a bridge between people and land. The vision of The Tent of Nations is to prepare people to make a positive contribution to their future and society through the values of understanding and respect. This is to be achieved through education-awareness campaigns, youth empowerment, and work camps. The Tent of Nations Farm is located south west of Bethlehem near the village of Nahalin. This land is still under threat of confiscation and we are still in the Israeli courts defending the farm since 26 years without giving up. Still we believe in justice and our response to the unjust situation is in a nonviolent and creative way under the slogan "We refuse to be enemies".

Type of Work: This camp will be held for local children from the Bethlehem region to take part in Arts, music, dance, theatre, sport and games on daily basis. This will also be a chance for children to meet volunteers from different countries and cultures. Children will also learn about their own rural heritage in a peaceful location and to learn to be connected with the ground. The children summer camp will be educational and will promote tolerance and peace and will challenge prejudice, but most importantly it will be a chance for the children to have a break from the politics that overwhelm their childhood.

Study Theme: With Heart & Hand, we change the Land. Creativity & Talents

Accommodation: volunteers will sleep in big tent at the campsite equipped with beds and matrasses
