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.
