Andrew College Supports Youth Camp Experience

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

The Allied Health Division at Andrew College is sponsoring four students from Clay County to attend the Peacebuilders Camp at Koinonia Farm in Americus. This was arranged through Clay County Health Partnership. The middle school students will spend a week learning how to work toward peace and justice.  At the end of the camp, each camper will choose a goal to work toward during the following six months, using their own gifts and talents to make their community more just.

Koinonia Farm’s Peacebuilder Camp website states that the farm was a critical site during the Civil Rights Movement and continues to inspire social change through its example of community and its innovations in sustainable agriculture. The camp welcomes youth from all over to learn, play, live and serve.

Andrew College looks forward to following these students on their journey.

Andrew College student Kaylaya Charlton, also recently completed a sustainable agriculture internship with the farm. This internship was required for her sustainable agriculture program studies.
