Come to Summer Camp!
Friday 25 August to Monday 28 August
NOW'S THE time to book up for Summer Camp. For three days at the end of August, you can relax in pleasant surroundings in the Essex countryside. You can participate in a wide range of political discussions - organised for every morning and evening. And there's plenty of time free to try out new sports and activities - like canoeing, mountain biking and climbing. Instructors supervise all activities, so beginners of any age can participate.
There is entertainment in the evenings - the famous quiz, with a special one for children - and campers with musical talent can show it off round the campfire.
The political discussions will cover issues like: US 'superpower' - is the Empire in crisis?, the launch of the new Socialist Party pamphlet Muslims Under Siege, How a new workers' party can be built, Women's' rights and the 'raunch culture', a rally on the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Revolution, Marxism and science and much more.
There will be sessions organised by and for younger people and people new to the Socialist Party.
International Socialist Resistance members and supporters can participate in political art and drama activities as well as question and answer sessions and "how-to" workshops.
There's a creche for younger children throughout all the political discussions and there will be plenty of opportunity to play cricket, football, rounders and any other sports and games you're keen on.
What an end to the summer - meet fellow socialists from all over the country. Have some good political discussions, some fun and of course some sun.
