What's New ...
After 14 years of organizing the Centre for Social Justice Retreat at Camp Arowhon we are going to have take a year off. Camp Arowhon has provided a wonderful residence for the Retreat over the years but this year the camp decided they would use the period at the end of August for other activities. Unfortunately, we were not told until quite late and did not have the time to do a search for a comparable location.
I know how important the Retreat has been for many people over the years. It has also been an important and long running event for the Centre as well.
We need more help in planning and relaunching the event for future years. If you have ideas, (and retreat participants always have ideas) about how we can rejuvenate the place and format and are willing to help, please send us a note.
After the 2011 Retreat...
The CSJ's fourteenth consecutive annual Summer Social Justice Retreat was held once again at Camp Arowhon in Algonquin Park. Over a 100 people participated in panels and workshops.
The theme this year was “Age of Austerity: Separate Struggles, Common Foe.” Some of the workshop titles included:
• THC Tenant’s Speakers Bureau - Agents of Change
• The possibilities of Social Enterprise
• Reflections on the Provincial Elections
• and many social and cultural events
