Manna Project International’s
annual summer camp has gotten off to a great start with over 38 kids signed up
to participate! This year, we’ve focused on exploring different cultures and
countries from around the world in
attempts to give the kids a small sample of “Todo Del Mundo.” By focusing on Europe, Africa and Asia
through history lessons, art projects and even listening to the Frozen
soundtrack in numerous languages, we’ve
definitely tried to incorporate as many new cultures and experiences as possible. With everything from African tribal masks, European geography
lessons and Polka dancing, it has definitely been a packed but amazing
week. This past Saturday, the group headed to a
local farm where we helped with weeding and planting before the kids
participated in a discussion about the importance of agriculture.
One of the most enjoyable aspects as Program Director has
been the opportunity to get to know the kids on a more personal level. We’ve had so
much fun playing, learning and watching how incredibly creative they can be
when given the chance.
We’ve got two weeks, a ton of activities and a whole lot
of the world left to explore!
