Sharing our sacred objects and learning from each other why they are important.
Kosher chocolate chip pancakes!
Sitting and listening to one another with care and intention. Learning how to hear someone else’s pain and to heal together.
Feeling, firsthand, how frustrating injustice can be via a totally unfair (but super fun!) game.
Getting letters/emails from mom or dad. Remembering how much our loved ones miss us.
Taking a quick but much needed nap!
Making friendship bracelets to share with new friends.
Recreation time! Soccer, archery, outdoor survival, nature art, or rock climbing!
Dance and theatre games with Brio Integrated Theatre which helped us find our joy and feel more confident in our own unique selves.
Laughs and songs over dinner.
Sharing with the entire Camp Merrowvista summer camp community about what it means to be a peacemaker. We shared our answers to:
What does friendship have to do with peace?
Why is it important to be friends with people different from me?
How is my perspective changing because of Kids4Peace?
That’s the life of a Kids4Peace kid. Weaving in and out of intentional peacebuilding time and just plain having a ton of fun with friends who you never knew you could be friends with.
