Camp activities:

Morning activities will include activities to build empathy, resilience, and community, and to empower children to create a peaceful future. We will explore mutual respect, open-mindedness, self-respect, community, and individuality. We will focus on a celebration of diversity, respect and appreciation for others, teamwork and cooperation. We will use group games, crafts, songs, and fun to reinforce learning that will help us all to live in a peaceful world.

Other fun activities will fill the week. In the afternoon, there will be a variety of activities including non-competitive games, drama games, and choice activities. We will do some field trips that will be announced at a later date.

Snacks and beverages will be provided during camp. Children are asked to bring a bag lunch.
