Summer Day Camp

The Rosa Parks Museum’s annual educational summer day camp, "Architects of Change," is open to all Montgomery-area middle and high school students who will be entering grades 6-12 during the 2019-2020 school year. The mission of the camp is to share the techniques of non-violent conflict resolution used by Mrs. Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other leaders of the early Civil Rights Movement. Our goal is to connect past struggles in the quest for equal rights to social justice struggles that continue today.

About the camp…

  • Workshops led by New Way from the organization Something New (Atlanta, Georgia).
  • Training helps campers to handle conflict effectively and peacefully; embrace forgiveness, understanding and acceptance and respond to conflict with reconciliation instead of lashing out or holding grudges.

  • Walking tour of downtown Montgomery’s civil rights historic sites
