Baha’i youth camp un­der­way this week

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - LIFESTYLES -

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 pei­ju­nio­ry­outh@gmail.com.
