The kids at Project Harmony camp mostly do normal summer activities, like participate in sports tournaments, as a way to get to know each other. Here, children compete in a jumping contest.
Project Harmony camp in Jerusalem is mostly normal, but the war in Gaza is not far off. Kids have been doing drills in bomb shelters to take cover from rockets launched from Gaza.
Emmanuel Samara, left, and Rafi Filimon say they like going to the Jewish-Arab summer camp in Jerusalem, but sometimes they don't feel comfortable speaking Arabic on the city bus that takes them there.
Lelia Ben-Horin, left, and Inbar Shaked-Vardi, both 14, say at this Jewish-Arab summer camp, "there are no teams" cheering on Israel or Hamas. "This war is between people who are full of hate."
