Day One

Three Kenyan students arrived late last night, and the students from Tanzania arrived before lunch today! All AYLE students are here, totally twenty-nine. On Day One, we created community agreements, introduced family groups, and set intentions for the next ten days. In the afternoon, facilitators Hannah and Jakob designed and led a challenge course for the students with various team-building activities.

In the evening, we introduced key sessions that are held every night: Quiet Time, where a facilitator reads a poem and holds meditation for fifteen minutes, and Family Circles, where small groups of seven or eight students meet with their family facilitators. The evening was a presentation of these family groups, where each group led a chant and a dance and shared their intentions with the rest of camp.
