Mini World Fest at Common Threads

These photos are from the last day of the first session of summer camp. This day is called World Festival and is an opportunity for the campers to invite their families to enjoy food from different regions of the world and to show off their cooking skills.

The menu included food from four different places: Hawaii, Sweden, Japan, and France. Some of the favorite dishes from the buffet included: ratatouille, sushi, coconut shrimp and crepes with a strawberry reduction.

The lunch was finished with a wonderful treat from Berry Chill, who provided their fresh and tangy frozen yogurt that is a healthy alternative to ice cream.









In addition to cooking, students learn about different regions of the world through classroom activities. The crafts they made throughout the camp were displayed on the last day for their families.

While studying India, campers created a large batik mural by compiling wax drawings.


The campers each made and decorated a mask while studying Africa. Each mask was accompanied by a short story, written by the camper.

It was a bittersweet goodbye, to see all of the familiar faces exit camp for the last time this summer; however, we have a lot to look forward to as a new group of kids walk through the door on Monday.
