ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – — Nearly 100 children and 30 chaperones are participating in King Center’s annual Nonviolence Opportunity Watch summer camp.
King Center officials say the first session of the camp begins Monday and runs through June 21. The camp is geared toward teaching children and young adults how to use Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy of nonviolence to resolve every day conflicts.
Organizers say the camp includes participants from New Mexico, Detroit, South Carolina and the metro Atlanta area. The second session is scheduled for July 15 through 17 and is slated to include a group of youth from Cyprus — an island nation south of Turkey.
