WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE CO, (WOLF) — A community gathering was held by The First Presbyterian Church on South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre on MLK Day.
This was a gathering for the 2023 Peace Camp.
Children who entered first grade through eighth grade last September were eligible to join.
Enrollment fees are $25 per child, with scholarships available for families with multiple children attending camp.
Daniel Hancuff, co-coordinator of Winter 2023 Peace Camp:
"It's a lot of lesson-learning, there were some activities for the kids to get their energy out, but the deal was to teach them lessons about Martin Luther King, equality, and segregation during the 1960s. They're never too young to learn these important parts of their country's history."
