Article 14, Section 1: Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.” [from Universal Declaration of Human Rights]

On the last day of camp, we drove to El Refugio, a hospitality house in Lumpkin, GA that offers a free place to stay and a meal for any family visiting a loved one at Stewart Detention Facility, the largest immigrant detention center in the U.S. We made hand-cranked homemade ice cream with the milk and cream from the Mennonite dairy farm and shared it with everyone at El Refugio. Then, to end camp, we took a short hike at Providence Canyon State Park. Campers hugged, exchanged contact info, and then we went home, tired, but happy.

El Refugio in Lumpkin is the only place within miles and miles to stay for families visiting a husband, father or uncle at the Stewart Detention Facility.

Making homemade ice cream is hard work!

Though making the ice cream took muscles, team work and patience, the final product tasted SO GOOD!

A visit to Providence Canyon was a beautiful way to end a great week of camp.

At providence canyon, we hiked and climbed trees, before leaving for home.

A great time was had by all!!!
