Children in grades one to five are invited to attend a day camp in celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. The camp will take place on Monday, Jan. 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m at St. John's Episcopal Church, 321 W. Chestnut St., Lancaster, in the parish hall. Over the course of the day, students will explore the Declaration of Universal Human Rights through games, discussion, stories and art.
Playwright Barry Kornhauser, who oversees the Family Arts Collaborative at Millersville University, will lead a movement workshop. Working in mixed age groups, children will also prepare video vignettes about different parts of the declaration. The day will end with a viewing of the videos and a moment of quiet reflection and prayer for the continuation of King's work.
There is no fee, and lunch will be provided. Attendees are asked to arrive on time and stay until the program concludes. Preregistrations are required by Friday, Jan. 12, by calling the church office at 717-299-1188.
