Day One of Peace Camp

Today kicked off the first day of Peace Camp. This summer's theme is "Peace through the Arts." Each day the kids will learn about at a different art form and how it impacts their lives. Today the groups did an introduction to what the arts are, set up their classroom rules and created their own name tags that they will use for the duration of the camp. The kids (and volunteers!) really persevered through the heat and had a good time.

Tonight for dinner we had a PV staple; spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. Yum, yum!

Reflection tonight focused on the idea of Peace, how it is not only the absence of war, but is so many other things. It tied in well with the camp and gave us simple things that we can each do.
