The celebration concludes with the One World Cafe on Thursday, April 30, an on-campus potluck featuring the cuisine of the countries studied, music, crafts, and other activities.

Time to start making your summer camp plans! The Country Day Camp at Goshen Friends School offers two specially designed programs, Little Explorers and Explorers.
Little Explorers, for children ages 2½–5, runs Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., with Lunch Bunch and Extended Care options available if a longer day is desired. Little Explorers is a great first camp experience that encourages independence and developing skills through a creative and engaging variety of structured and self-select centers. Six weeks of camp are offered from June 9 through July 16.
Explorers, a full-day camp for children ages 6–12, consists of games, sports, and self-select options in the morning, followed by a healthy lunch and theme-based afternoon activities. Campers may also register separately for Monday and Friday outings for fishing, hiking, swimming, scavenger hunts, and more at nearby parks, farms, and nature centers. Four weeks of camp are offered from June 8 through July 3, with both 3- and 5-day-per-week options.
Sibling and multi-week discounts available!
