Baha’i youth camp underway this week
A junior youth aimed at helping youth acquire literacy skills and develop positive morals is being held in Charlottetown this week.
The camp for youth aged 11-15 is Aug. 7-11, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, at the Charlottetown Bahai Centre, 20 Lapthorne Ave. (behind Birchwood school).
This is a Baha’i-inspired program and is an inclusive space for youth of every culture and religion to participate.
The junior youth program also assists youth to develop service projects for their community. The program utilizes the skills of older youth, called animators, to work with junior youth in a mentorship capacity.
The summer program will include drama, painting, stories, music, games and sports. As well, youth will design a service project to help them build an understanding of community action and development. The cost for materials is $15. For more information or to register, call 902-217-5780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Animators prepare materials to get ready for Junior Youth Camp. In the centre is Lomeharshan Lall, and from left, are Estefania Penagoes, Hanna Power Zaat, Josh Talbeli, Hana Mactier Marla Zatt and Mahalia Thompson Onichino.
