Sunset at the Goddess Temple
Camp Justice is our beautiful peace camp based on the Goddess Temple grounds located 3 miles north on highway 95 from where we will vigil twice daily at Creech Air Force Base. This welcoming oasis offers us shade, running water, showers, outdoor flush toilets, cooking facilities and much more. We'll have access to the outdoor Peace Pavilion for a gatherings & meetings and our sacred "Temple to Sekhmet" offers a unique place for those seeking solace and a place for healing prayer and meditation.
Due to the corona virus pandemic, most of us will be sleeping in tents, cars or RV vehicles to minimize health risks. Exception: A "Creecher" can make their own arrangements in Las Vegas, but we encourage participants to camp with us on the Goddess Temple grounds, to help nurture our peace community, and minimize driving trips to/from Las Vegas.
Guesthouse: (UPDATE: With a significant lessening of severe Covid cases, a very limited beds will be available this spring, 2022, one person per room). Guesthouse beds are available for those most in need: our elders (70 & over) and those with physical limitations that make camping difficult will have priority.

The desert is beautiful all year long, with the surrounding mountains and gorgeous Nevada sunrises and sunsets to inspire us all....and, yes, even "wild horses" to visit nearby!
Spontaneous creative expressions are welcome throughout the camp experience, with song, instruments, yoga, dancing, and other shared talents encouraged. If you would like to lead us in any organized yoga, movement/stretching, singing/dance/music, educational or other activities or workshops please contact us.
We want to create a connected community at Camp Justice in the daytime & evenings, and will do our best to provide a comfortable place to de-stress from our activist work. We will have mid-day outings and activities between am & pm rush hour vigils. We welcome help and suggestions in this area. At Camp Justice we will also offer chances to exchange ideas and brainstorm ways we can better connect and work together to demilitarize Our Mother Earth. Many of these creative and inspiring exchanges will take place on Friday....a full day of debriefing, rejuvenation and connecting.
Remember: We are modeling a peace community for our friends at Creech AFB. Let's make it joyful and fun!
