HELLO IS YOUR PASSPORT (BONJOU SE PASPO OU)!
Join the Road to Hope in a 4 week summer camp for kids in 2-8th grades to learn all about the beautiful country of Haiti! Develop a project to take action in creating a better world.
My name is Rachel Harris. I am excited to announce that with the help of the Road to Hope, I will be teaching a virtual summer camp all about Haiti called Bonjou se Paspo Ou or Hello is Your Passport!
The camp is scheduled for two sessions, the first from June 22nd to July 17th and the second from July 20th to August 10th. It will be held in two age groups, ultimately for ages 6-14, or grades 2nd through 8th.
I am very excited at the chance to teach a group of young people about a place I care so deeply about in an immersive, online experience. We will cover topics such as Haiti’s history, present state, it’s culture, it’s community, and much more. The camp will even include guest speakers from The Road to Hope and from Haiti. We will spend time every day on common Creole phrases and conversations so that by the end of the 4 week session, each participant will be able to send a letter to a penpal in Haiti.
I love Haiti because of the uniqueness of its culture, community and spirit. I hope to share some of my love for the country as well as a foundational set of knowledge about the country.
We will engage in conversations on what a Developing country is, and how the lack of financial resources in countries like Haiti affects the people there on a day to day basis. We will read poems, chapters from books, listen to music, watch clips of videos, draw Tap Taps, learn to prepare Haitian food! But that is just the start. It is the perfect time to immerse yourself in a new culture, right from your couch!
