Dabkeh and Falafel
Today was a fun-filled day spent at the school. The campers played community-building games, splitting up into their groups and competing. They also spent time brainstorming the ways in which they could creatively represent their experience in the camp. Art is an important medium in which to express and reflect and the campers took time to think about the ways in which they could collectively utilize this medium. After chowing down on falafel sandwiches, the campers were given a lesson in traditional Palestinian dance - dabke. Over the course of an hour and a half, they were able to master the steps to a dance, splitting into groups and performing for the others. Some of our resident students are dabke dancers themselves and were able to show off their moves to the whole group.
