The King Center is sponsoring two summer camp sessions, the “N.O.W. Encounter: Kingian Nonviolence in Action” from June 25-29 and July 16-20 to help prepare young people to apply Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s philosophy of nonviolence to resolve conflicts in their daily lives and to become ambassadors for nonviolent social change. The day camp sessions, which will be conducted at The King Center, will also include “experiential  learning” field trips to Montgomery and Birmingham, Alabama, as well as team-building activities; creative presentations; non-competitive sports games; contemporary positive music; and celebrity guests. Participants in the N.O.W. (Nonviolence Opportunity Watch) Encounter include 40 young people from diverse communities, ages 13-18 in each session.

“Our 2012 summer youth encounter will prepare youth to be influential leaders and change agents serving as catalysts to their peers, as well as help them to enhance their leadership and team-building skills” said King Center C.E.O. Bernice A. King..We’re presenting a fantastic opportunity for young people to experience an amazing week of Edu-inspir-tainment: education, inspiration and entertainment.”
