A summer full of Messengers of Peace
8th Nov 2012
NSAM is one of many associations that through this project is making a step in solving national problems and in promoting peace at the local level.
The projects of NSAM “Together in Scouting, Together for Peace” aims are:
1. The enlargement of “Messengers of Peace”; 2. Social involvement of children whose parents or one parent left abroad; 3. Development of social, intellectual, moral, physical skills through scout method; 4. Education of children and youth in the spirit of an active civic participation.
As promoters of these values are scouts and future scouts who attended in camps organized for all age groups within NSAM during the entire period of summer. The camp was attended 443 children of all ages (Cub Scouts 7-10 years, camp organized on 11-15 July, v. Ivancea, Orhei; Adventurers 11-14 years, camp held on 15-20 July , v. Talmaza, Stefan-Voda; Explorers 15-17 years , July 30-August 4, v. Andrusul de Sus, Cahul; Rover 18-21 years, 12-17 August camp organized, v. Saharna, Orhei). Each camp has been a well established, depending on the particularities of each age but they all included common points such as: workshop "Peace", "SOS Nature", "Scout Skills", social activities (help to the visited monasteries during the camps, help for the elderly in villages near the camp). All participants were divided into patrols, which were mixed -Scouts and future Scouts, children with both parents and children of immigrants or from socially vulnerable families. During the few days of camp, participants had the opportunity of to know, to absorb and to be in for everything they have learned. Regardless of the status, all the kids have worked shoulder to shoulder, full of enthusiasm, smiles and eager to know and discover new experiences and scout challenges. This summer has proven to be one full of games, songs, challenges, fun activities and self-dedication perfect combination for a successful camp with true Messengers of Peace.
