Today marks the arrival of volunteers for our 12th Annual Summer Peace Camp in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY. The best word to describe today is HOT!!! New York is enjoying is first hot weather of the summer just in time for our arrival. For all of you who enjoy the coolness and comfortableness of our air conditioned home in Glen Fork Grade School, the living in Bed-Stuy is quite a bit different. We stay is a three story tenanement building with no air conditioning and very little circulation. Lets just say it is quite toasty!
We kicked of the summer program today with an orientation to the area and to the camp. After talking about plans for the first day of the camp, we moved upstairs for the commissioning service. Everyone called it an early night to rest up for the first day of camp. Wish us luck!
