Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp - New Jersey

The Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp is named after the sacred Split Rock site that lays within the mountains of northeastern New Jersey. "Sweet water" is the Lenape meaning for 'Ramapoo' (currently spelled as Ramapough). For generations, members of the Ramapough Lenape Nation have regarded this sacred site as a place of worship and reflection, a tradition that is still kept dear today.


What are they fighting?-

Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp was formed in October of 2016 in solidarity with the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Led by Ramapough Lenape Nation, the camp was erected to educate the public on the impending crises of the AIM and Pilgrim pipelines that threaten the local water supply in our region.
