is the largest section of this website. It has three sections.
first, Work, has stories and pictures
of conscientious objectors working in the camps. They performed
many different jobs, from fighting forest fires to building roads.
They also worked on a top secret military project. It was so secret,
the COs didn't even know about it!
second section, Life at Camp, is about
how the men spent their free time. They worked hard all day, but
in the evenings and the weekends they played music, held religious
services, and even formed a CO newspaper.
third section, Support from Home,
is what made the whole CO experience possible. Without the encouraging
mail from home and visits from ministers, life as a CO would have
been even more difficult.
