Go Palestine is deeply rooted in the Quaker values and testimonies of the Ramallah Friends Schools. Giving back to the community is an integral part of how we practice those very same values we espouse.
We believe that diaspora Palestinian youth, regardless of their financial situation, should have the opportunity to experience Palestine. We do not want the costs to also be prohibitive to those who have the acceptable travel documents to visit, but are constrained by financial reasons.
Go Palestine’s curriculum and itinerary help develop many of the campers’ leadership and social skills, confidence, as well as promote personal awareness, independence, and growth.

Within the Wall
I wasn’t a big fan of summer camps. Learning how to carve a miniature canoe out of soap wasn’t my idea of fun. So, when my mother first suggested I apply to the Go Palestine Camp this summer I thought, “here we go again.” But as much as I hate to admit that my mom might have been right, it turned out to be one of the best summers I’ve ever had.
