Solitary confinement is the practice of isolating a prisoner in a closed cell for 22 to 24 hours a day – often for weeks or months, and sometimes for years or decades at a time. At Trinity Lutheran, members will have the opportunity to see and experience a solitary confinement cell. Lancaster Friends Meeting (Quakers) built a replica of an isolation/confinement cell or Special Housing Unit AKA "SHU". In addition to replicating its isolating physical dimensions, this display includes the noises - endless shattering day and night noises - of a solitary confinement prison cell. Adults are invited to briefly enter this 6’ x 8' solitary cell and experience the exposure to an environment devoid of dignity and meaningful human interaction.
**Persons with anxiety conditions should carefully consider whether participation is appropriate. **
You are invited to come together with children ages 5 to 12 at the Lancaster Friends Meeting and spend five days learning about community building, nature exploration, Quaker ideas, service work, games, crafts and much, much more. We will take at least two "field trips," including the Lancaster County Park (which will involve swimming). The theme of this year's camp is the Testimony of Community.
