At our summer camp, we will have the CIT's prepare 2 parachutes ahead of time. They will have Bender/ Edlavitch JCC written in the center, as well as the phrase "a call to action."
You (Barton Rubenstein, MEP co-founder) will be speaking to the campers about the environment and hopefully this will be an interactive discussion. The parachutes will be available for the campers to decorate at whatever point you deem it appropriate for them to do so. There are two hours set aside each morning for community service. I will purchase a parachute for each group, as well as permanent markers.
Sustainable Actions in this Community
The campers are really looking forward to your (Barton Rubenstein's) discussion about the environment tomorrow. There will be 19 campers and they will be decorating one parachute together. As we discussed, each camper will write a pledge or two of what actions they can take to help the environment.
