Summer Day Camp

2024 Rosa Parks Museum Architects of Change summer camp

The Rosa Parks Museum’s annual educational summer day camp, Architects of Change, is open to all River Region middle students who will be entering grades 6-8 during the 2024-2025 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 on conflict resolution and building the Beloved Community.
  • 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.
  • Connecting past Civil Rights events to modern social justice issues through visits to civil rights sites
  • Culminating art project
