With the launch of our first week together, we have been transported through our hearts, minds, and computer screens into each other’s places. This has been a week for getting to know each other, and getting to know ourselves a bit more deeply. 

Through our Live Calls, we got to meet amazing new friends and learn about their homes. Pets, books, and more filled our screens, as did laughter and joy. Our first round of Pen Pals were matched this week. With over 90 Pen Pals matched, letters have begun to be sent from near and far, building connections across continents.

Reading “I am From” poems have taken us through memories and each camper’s sense of identity. Images of delicious chocolate chip cookies have made more than a few tummies grumble, and brought warmth to our hearts. Industrious farmers have created whole miniature agricultural operations, getting their hands busy and building.
