The Camel Caravan: Taking Bullying Intervention to the Next Level

by The Camel Project

Apr 17, 2019

The Camel Project is proud to introduce The Camel Caravan, a 40- ft. community advocacy bus, as a new champion for bullying intervention and elimination.

The Camel Caravan will travel around the country to further The Camel Project’s mission of assisting communities in changing the culture of violent and unacceptable behaviors that result in bullying, trauma, and abuse. The Camel Caravan will create a huge impact, and build momentum and awareness about bullying and other unacceptable social behaviors and activities. The community as a whole, including schools, organizations, and individuals, will take control and develop consistency of vision for the community.

“Why a 40-foot bus?” says The Camel Project’s executive director Pamela Gockley, “The Camel Project implements bullying intervention programs to communities for wellness and The Camel Caravan creates visibility and attention to a community seeking a ‘Go Big or Go Home’ statement for a healthy social environment. We want the impact and optics of a 40-foot rolling billboard and learning tool to capture the curiosity and attention of the community. The Camel Caravan’s appearance on the highway or at a location causes a buzz and becomes a catalyst for an outreach event to engage and empower the community to increase awareness and educate to end this preventable gateway behavior. When we study violence, suicide, homelessness, drug, and physical abuse, the common thread starts with someone being bullied or by similar trauma or abuse.”

Gockley continues, “The community, as a whole, benefits from a visit by The­­­­ Camel Caravan. It brings together law enforcement, businesses, schools, religious centers, and residents and shows a commitment to wellness for the community. The Caravan starts the conversation about eliminating unwanted aggressive behaviors that may be unique to their community. Business and organizations can show their support for the community by publicly displaying their commitment on the bus.”
