Before we arrived in our site, we had a to-do list for our first week. Carte de sejour, forms and paperwork, post office box, pick up luggage from CTM station. All that fun stuff. But alas, we were not fated to finish any of it because of the chaos and tumult that was Spring Camp.
Every day was a disarray of shifting schedules, screaming kids, and unanticipated circumstances. We taught English, facilitated games, created art, played chess, and even went on a field trip to the city museum. It was pandemonium, but really fun pandemonium. What a way to start our life in our new city. Well, I guess it was a success because we didn’t lose any kids! I mean, there was one close call, but let’s not dwell… 🙂
Most camps in Morocco end with a spectac: a talent show extravaganza showcasing all kinds of youth talent. Ours was booming loud, but great fun.
