The 2nd annual Ahimsa Summer Camp was a big success. Attendance was much larger and more consistent. We had anywhere from 7 to 14 children each week. The camp ran from June 19 thru August 28. Activities this year included bread baking, bird watching, hissing cockroaches, boat building, honey bee class, dances of universal peace, yoga bowling, cooking, swimming, cooperative games, drawing, hiking, making flower pots, gardening and more. Check out our web site for details for the 2009 camp.
