Two days ago, my busy summer of vacations, travel, and volunteering drew to a close with the last day of Camp Harmony. I’ve been involved with this summer camp program for homeless kids for the past fifteen years. The people and the program are both very dear to me, and yet another reason why writing for kids is close to my heart.
Below are a few homemade video which will hopefully help give you a sense of just how wonderful and magical this program is for the kids who get to experience a week of sports, swimming, arts and crafts, and so many other wonderful activities that help provide an invaluable respite from their normal lives.
PS — The teenagers you see in the video are counselors who pay to spend the week taking care of the younger, elementary school kids.
PSS — Sorry the video isn’t widescreen, I shot it on my iPhone in portrait rather than landscape 😦
