Camp Justice

Sunset at the Goddess Temple  

Camp Justice is our beautiful peace camp that is now 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, and cooking facilities and much more.  We'll have access to the Peace Pavilion for a gatherings & meetings and our sacred "Temple to Sekhmet" that offers a unique place for those seeking solace and a place for healing prayer and meditation. 

Due to the corona virus pandemic, all of us will be sleeping in our own tents, cars or RV vehicles in order 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:  (Beds will not be available this spring due to the pandemic).  Under normal circumstances limited 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.  There is a wait list for beds for everyone else. 

Contact our "Guest House Goddess", Maggie, for bed reservations/questions:

This is the site of most of our daily activities, including meals, nonviolence training, workshops, educational activities, team building, and most importantly, strategizing and preparing for nonviolently SHUTTING DOWN CREECH, for as long as possible.

Optional: bring lots of colorful visuals and signs to decorate CAMP JUSTICE. Help us build a really beautiful peace community.  Tents, Cars, Camper vehicles and vans are all welcome!

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. New activities are in the works. At Camp Justice we also hope to 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!
