LAST YEAR'S CAMPERS SAID:"I came to camp with a 'show me' attitude. But the weekend was a transformative experience that helped free me from the past and begin to move forward." -- Israeli camper, daughter of Holocasut survivor"It was a weekend to remember. People could express themselves and be heard in a safe place. If it can be done here, it can be done anywhere. We both demonstrated to each other that we do not need to be enemies." -- Palestinian man, born in Ramallah"I found deep meaning in meeting 'the enemy' more personally for the first time." -- Recent IDF soldier"I could not have felt more welcome. As you know it's been very difficult for me coming back from my trip to Qalquilya, Ramallah, and Jerusalem, so it was very healing to see and feel all the support." -- Palestinian woman camper
