Peace Building through English Summer Camps
The 2013 Nazareth Summer Camp theme, “English is Your Passport to the World” begins to describe the experiences by campers and counselors alike. Not only do the children learn English and gain global awareness, but they also learn peaceful and respectful communication skills. Our counselors come from all over the world and learn from the children, host families and the community while they teach English utilizing their various skills.
