Care Bears 

The Care Bears are a team prepared to help with conflict resolution and support community accountability. The role entails supporting to mediate conflict or other issues that may arise that threaten the well-being of individuals or our collective. Helpful skills for being a Care Bear include listening, conflict resolution, de-escalation, somatics, or other ways to stay present in your body while holding space for others. You don’t have to have all the answers or be formally trained. Our lived experiences often give us the skills to hold this role.

We aim for all Care Bears to be filled and coordinated before camp.
