by Dala, Muslim Counselor, Houston Camp
Time passes so quickly. Here we are on the 5th day. We started our day with birthday’s songs because we had two birthdays for Stuart who is the director of camp, and for May who is another Jerusalem counselor, so lots of delicious cakes were eaten by everyone.
The next part of the day was the activity part and we went to the high rope courses. It was so nice seeing the kids supporting each other when they are all on very high heights. We went swimming after the high-ropes because we needed a cold place to be in because Houston is so hot.
We ended our night with a campfire and we did s’mores. A camp with Kids4peace can’t be finished without a campfire which everyone sits together and just chat over the campfire with music and everything.
“Today we went to the high ropes, I was scared at the beginning, but then I got a lot of support from friends and I had so much fun I even did the zip-line.” -Marianne, 13, Christian
“Today I had so much fun I was partying so much and I had a blast at the lake because the activities were new to me and I experienced it for the first time.” -Mira, 13, Muslim
