Peace Village 2014 has certainly been off to a fantastic start. The familiar sound of children laughing and the delightful smell of food being prepared in the kitchen fills the air. I look forward to coming to Peace Village every summer. It is such a magical place to be around lively kids and wonderful staff who volunteer their time to be here. Peace Village is truly a special camp that makes my summer so much better.
This year there are over 150 campers at camp! I have been coming to Peace Village since the very beginning and it has been such a thrill to watch it grow bigger and bigger every year. People all over the gorge have embraced the concept of Peace Village which has allowed the camp to flourish in the best way possible.
Today, my Salamander group went to an "Earth Art" activity. We listened to a story about animals working together to stop the hurtful habits that we inflict on the planet. I watched the children's faces as they listened to the story. They were engaged and excited. This is what Peace Village is all about. It is about making children think about issues in the world and helping them to learn how to be a peaceful leader. I am looking forward to what the rest of the Peace Village week has to offer!
