Can you believe that these 12 young people and their wonderful staff are already in the air flying toward Boston for Kids4Peace summer camp!?!?
The local team, here in Boston, is extremely excited to greet them when they arrive! The Boston team just finished two days of staff training and have this enthusiastic message to share:
“Hello from most of this years’ Kids4Peace Boston staff! We jumped right into training, prepping, playing, and doing a little arts and crafts as we excitedly await the beginning of camp this summer!
The Boston team of six staff and two counselors-in-training have spent bountiful time together in the town of East Falmouth, a little south of Boston on the Cape. In a beautiful home just a few minutes drive from the beach, we practiced how to create safe spaces for dialogues, conflict resolution, and reflected on what it is like to be a twelve or thirteen year old. We’ve shared experiences where we have seen interfaith dialogue not only be successful, but beautiful, and gathered the key ingredients for this success that we can bring to K4P to help foster a positive learning environment. The energy and excitement to work with these incredible children is growing by the minute!
But it’s not all work…this is camp after all! We’ve also been playing games and cooking up a storm with team-challenge dinner! Do you know how fun it is to make vegan ice cream? We do! It perfectly complimented our tossed salad with homemade dressing and the choose-your-own-adventure entree of cous cous with stir fried veggies, falafel, kosher meat, and choice of two curries. What a feast to bring us all closer as a staff!”
