Boise Kids Learn About Their Neighbors At International Camp
A unique summer camp wraps up in Boise Friday. About 20 middle school age kids spent two weeks making art projects, going on field trips and singing songs. All pretty typical camp activities but for half the participants it was a new experience. They’re refugees from half a dozen countries on three continents. Boise’s Department of Parks and Recreation teamed up with the Idaho Office for Refugees for the first Boise International Camp.
Paul Schoenfelder with Parks and Rec. says helping Boise’s refugee community is a priority for the city. “So it’s an opportunity to bring kids together both who are refugees and who aren’t refugees so they can sort of learn more from each other.”
We wanted to find out just what the kids have learned from each other.
