I love camp. I love the silliness, excitement and community. Most importantly, I love the learning opportunities and teachable moments camp can offer. I am Katie Gingerich, a fourth-year Peace and Conflict Studies student and this summer’s Peace Camp Coordinator. When this job opportunity arose in January this past year, I jumped at the chance. How often do you get to mix two of your favourite things into a summer job? For me, this means forging camp and teaching with peace-building and social justice, all made possible by Peace Camp.
