Maine summer camp gives kids from Israel, Gaza seeds for peace

With tensions simmering in the Middle East, a bucolic lakeside summer camp in Otisfield, Maine, took 95 Israeli and Palestinian out of the conflict zone and hosted them as campers this month for a unique bonding experience. Some 6,000 miles removed from the fighting back home, the kids get to know one another in the woods of Maine, hoping that the lessons they learn at sleepover camp will one day help them work for peace back home. The camp, called Seeds of Peace, provides these teens with the invaluable and unforgettable experience — one that stresses dialogue, understanding and the idea that change is possible.
