As we posted before, the theme of our camp is Footprint Village – what´s the mark you leave on the world?

One of the ways that humans leave a mark on the world is through our impact on our environment.  And in order to help make our footprint smaller, we have planted two trees here at our campsite – a mango tree and a lemon tree.  The CISV song, which we sing every morning and every evening, says “sow a seed and plant a tree, beneath whose branches there may be, all the nations gathered free.”

We´ve also been told that the parents of the Swedish delegation will be planting trees to cover the carbon footprint of flying from Sweden to Brazil round trip!

And speaking of trees, check out this sneak peek of our beautiful campsite!
