I didn’t want to leave.

I had the pleasure of coming to camp on Thursday afternoon in time to welcome all of the Vermont/New Hampshire kids. They quickly met their counselors, settled into their bunk, took a tour of the camp, dodged a lot of hailstones, worked on an art project, ate dinner and got ready to welcome their new Israel/Palestine friends who arrived late evening tired but happy to be at camp.

Friday morning brought sunshine and smiles. How quickly all the kids fell into step with each other, while talking, eating meals, cleaning up, playing, singing and walking around camp. So many kids eager to share their thoughts, feelings and ideas.

I know when I return to camp in just a few days this already amazing group will be transformed. They will share and learn and grow in unimaginable ways.

I can’t wait to go back!
