Camp Horseshoe

June 30, 2005

I visited Camp Horseshoe twice this month. In the photo, high school students were staging a drama or skit based on Gandhi's little summary of activism:

First they ignore you.

Then they laugh at you.

Then they attack you.

Then you WIN!

The harps were placed in a circle, with just one person playing. Others came by, first ignoring, then laughing, then attacking, but eventually sitting down play along and then join hands, as shown.

I've used this little drama two or three times now, and it works very well. These are very sharp young people and they really got into it. Camp Horseshoe is affiliated with Ohio-West Virginia YMCA. More information here.
