I can't wait to hear from our subscribers about what qualities and characteristics matter. Is it important to have African American camp counselors and experiences that highlight Black heritage and the community's contemporary experience? So, examples may be the best camps should have an astronomy component where children can track the stars that guided Freedom Seekers on the Underground Railroad, and create art in the style of contemporary Black painters. Or is it more important that the camp have a focus on physical activities?
