We are pleased to share this first edition with you, our dear friends and partners throughout the world.
It arrives on the heels of a most successful Nazareth English Summer Camp, with emotion and communication between all sides still running high. Through the lens and voice of campers, local and overseas counselors, we attempt to convey to you the hope, promise and enduring spirit of camp. These are pockets of goodwill, learning, growth through collaboration and respectful celebration of difference. They emerge wherever and whenever individuals take time to meet, learn from and serve each other. We invite you to enjoy and take as many uplifting thoughts away from camp as we did.
