Camp Justice 2017

WHERE: Across highway from the South Gate of CREECH AFB, nearest to Las Vegas

Near the site of daily vigils, just south of Indian Springs, Nevada, on Hwy. 95

WHEN: April 23, 4pm to April 29, noon; Sunday - Saturday, all week.

(Campers can arrive earlier in day and begin to set up their camp sites;  The land is BLM property and no permit is required to camp up to 2 weeks).

Join our beautiful week-long Peace Encampment, where, in the spirit of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, we will create the "change we want to see in the world."  Optional: Please bring lots of colorful visuals and signs to decorate your tents and camp sites. We will show the U.S. Air Force what a beautiful DRONE FREE & DEMILITARIZED ZONE looks like!


This is a somewhat "primitive" camp ground, without running water, but these inconveniences are temporary and will pale in light of the JUSTICE we are seeking for all humanity.  We will provide drinking water in large vessels all week long.  In addition, just 2 miles down the road at our lovely Goddess Temple, there is an outdoor shower stall and sink installed last year.  This is a tremendous improvement, allowing all campers to have a place to go to take care of all hygiene needs. Not a camper?  Click HERE for other accommodation options. We encourage the majority of folks to stay in Indian Springs/Camp Justice area to minimize the impact on our mother earth's climate.

Tents, Cars, RV's and vans are all welcome!

Port-a potties will be available all week long.  

Meals at Camp Justice:  

Breakfasts and Lunches will be provided for all participants Tues. Apr. 25- Thurs. Apr. 26.  Dinners will be provided on Tues, Wed, and Friday ("Celebratory Feast" on Friday).  Thurs. evening will feature a film showing of the amazing drone documentary, National Bird in Las Vegas.  "Creechers" can purchase dinner in town before the screening.  

Donations for meal expenses are encouraged to defray the costs, but not required. You may donate ahead of time HERE. 

IMPORTANT:  During other parts of the week campers will be on their own for meals. There are very limited options in Indian Springs for nourishment.  This includes The Oasis Bar & restaurant, and a very tiny mini-market next door to the bar.  So come prepared, depending on your personal needs. 

For Mother Earth & her climate, please minimize, as able, 90 min. two-way trips to Las Vegas for supplies.


Reusable metal utensils will be provided. Feel free to bring favorite non-perishable food items you’d like to have. The outdoor sink at the Goddess Temple, 3 miles down the road, will be available for cleaning personal dishes, etc., but please help to keep this area clean.

Early morning (vigil) and night time could be very cold. Bring layered clothing, and accessories to address these varying conditions.  Remember to bring protection from the dry environment and desert sun (hats with large brim, light clothing to cover skin, sunscreen, lip balm, dry skin lotions/oils, nasal saline solution, and rain gear, as needed). The desert is beautiful all year long, with the surrounding mountains and gorgeous Nevada sunrises and sunsets to inspire us all....and, yes, wild horses to visit nearby!

Spontaneous creative expressions are welcome throughout the camp experience, with song, instruments, yoga, dancing and other shared talents encouraged. We are modeling a peace community for our friends at Creech AFB.

Our day & evening Camp Justice experiences will be more fully developed this year, with Drum circles, music, singing, Group Yoga, nature excursions and much more.  Our new Program Chairs, Luna & Flora, will be embellishing our time together in new & joyful ways. We want to create a more connected community at Camp Justice in the evenings, a place to de-stress from daytime activist efforts. We welcome help and suggestions in the area. New & inspiring activities are in the works. We also hope to offer more 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 day of debriefing, rejuvenation and connecting.

"Peace, Love and S'mores........SCONES NOT DRONES!”
