Up to 200 high school students are expected to attend this year’s 50th annual NCCJ BROTHERHOOD-SISTERHOOD CAMP, August 19-25. The weeklong multiracial "summer camp" is designed to address racial tensions. At least 20-25 Korean-American teens are expected to attend from area public and private schools.
"Campers" experience a week unlike any offered at other summer camps. For six emotion-packed days, they confront racism, homophobia and other prejudices they find in themselves and in fellow campers. The camp will be held at a site in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Offered to the public since 1950, the program is sponsored by NCCJ - the National Conference for Community and Justice - a non-sectarian group founded in 1927 and known until recently as the National Conference of Christians & Jews.
Applications are still being taken, For information about the camp or other NCCJ programs, the public may call the group’s Los Angeles office:
