Camp HUGS 2019

This year's Camp HUGS theme was Peace: Looking at how peace plays a role in our world, community, and self.  The kids and volunteers partook in games and activities throughout the day that focused on finding peace and sharing it with others.  Each child was able to take home a bag full of goodies to help them find peace within themselves and teach others about peace, thanks to a grant from the Otis Thompson Foundation.
