New Orleans, LA – This year, despite a sizzling hot June, the Peace Center hosted the second annual Peace Camp for 19 children, ages 7-10, who would not have been able to have a camp experience because of economic circumstances.
Thirteen boys participated from June 6-10 and six girls enjoyed the camp from June 20-24. The children traveled to Rosaryville Spirit Life Center in Ponchatoula, LA, a ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace, where they experienced canoe rides, the archery range and the wonderful swimming pool. The campers enjoyed a delicious, healthy lunch each day. The Sisters also took all the campers to Rock ‘n Bowl, New Orleans; each week there was at least one camper who had never bowled before and also campers who were quite experienced.
