What we've been up to:
Summer Camps 2017:
This year, PCS planned 5 summer camps for all its students in all training locations: 2 camps in Birzeit, 1 in Jerusalem, 1 in Jenin and 1 in al Fara'a Refugee Camp.
The first camp was organized from June 11 to 15 and was joined by 17 students from our Yalla Nilaab groups from Birzeit and Ramallah.
The second summer camp was organized from July 3 to 12 in Birzeit for Multi + Moon groups. Around 50 students from Ramallah, Birzeit, Faraa RC, Jalazone RC and Jenin joined the camp.
The second camp was organized in the framework of a long term cooperation, funded by Erasmus+ and Provincie Vlaams Brabant, with Circus Zonder Handen-Belgium, where we exchange our experience of using circus as a tool for more social inclusion and for developing positive identities. 15 trainers from Circus Zonder Handen and from Cirkus In Beweging arrived to Palestine on July 1 to animate a summer camp for PCS students together with our team of trainers.
On the last day of the camp, our summer camp participated in the opening parade of the Ninth Heritage Week organized by Al Rozana Association in Birzeit. On July 13, some trainers from PCS and Circus Zonder Handen performed a joint show at the same festival.
3 more summer camps will follow in Jerusalem, Jenin and Al Faraa Refugee Camp.
