Bed Stuy Camp- Day 5

The final day of camp... today's big highlight was making solar ovens. The kids made ovens out of pizza boxes and then cooked s'mores in them during recess. It ended up being a really cool craft.

We really had a wonderful week of camp in Brooklyn. Huge thanks to all the PVs who came to pitch in and make it happen. We wouldn't have been able to pull it off without your help! Also, a big thanks to our local young women and young man, who came faithfully each day and helped the camp run. Most importantly they were wonderful mentors to the kids. In all we had 38 kids enjoy "Space Camp" with 8 local mentors.

We enjoyed a wonderful week, experienced an earthquake together and rallied on the last day to clean up and pack up quickly so all could get a head start in leaving the city ahead of Hurricane Irene. For all PVs in her path, stay safe!
