Looking for a great Christian summer camp in Northeast Pennsylvania? Check out Camp Iroquoina in Hallstead, PA. Nestled in the middle of the Endless Mountains, this rustic retreat offers Boys' Camp, Girls' Camp, Soccer Camp, and Family Camp. I have been a Counselor at several Christian camps, and have never been at a camp with such a wonderful atmosphere as Camp Iroquoina. This camp does not have the most modern facilities or equipment, but it is camp after all, and there is something nostalgic about the wooden cabins, old-fashioned dining hall and the small gift/snack shop. Swimming is in the lake with a slick water slide, and canoeing is offered in the pond. Camp Iroquoina is one of the few Christian camps that offer separate girls/boys

Throughout WWII, people of different countries were interned and imprisoned in camps all over the world. Japanese-Americans on the West Coast were taken out of their homes and placed in internment camps like Manzanar to detain them from communicating with Japan. Families were torn apart in these camps, leaving them scattered across the United States. The Japanese-Americans were deprived of the claim of habeas corpus, and soon they attempted to return to the life that they lived before the war. Even after Camp Manzanar was closed and World War II ended, Japanese-American families on the West Coast still experienced prejudice and unfairness in their new lives.
Camp Ketcha offers a unique environment for preschoolers to play. At their nature-based preschool, not only do they play inside with the typical toys for the little tikes, they use the outdoors to entertain their students for hours. Usually, when someone thinks of children's toys, legos, barbies, and toy race cars come to mind. But at Camp Ketcha, the children typically are more entertained by horses, gourds, and apple trees.
Waking up 6:30 in the morning isn't common for me but July 28th was the day I was driving up to Athens for Dawg Camp. I was waiting for this day since I was fortunate to receive a scholarship to go to Dawg Camp Discovery thanks to the UGA Parents Leadership Council. Every UGA event I attended, convinced me that Dawg Camp was an once in a lifetime opportunity. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out I was one of the recipient of the reward. Once arriving at UGA, I walked into Ramsey startled by the excitement coming from the basketball court. All of the camp counselors were beyond theatric when all of the campers came in one by one. As the day went on, I began to connect with my group, Silver 4, more and more. We were able to talk about our

I want to work at camp because I would like to give back. I have attended MFU camp for the past 11 years and I want to give back to MFU and the experience that I had during my years at camp. I would like to make an impact on kids’ lives and help create amazing memories, just like how previous councilors have done for me. I want to help change kids’ lives and give them a week that they will not forget.

At Iwo Jima there were more than 100 Navajo Code Talkers. Iwo Jima proved to be one of the most pivotal battles in the history of the United States and probably the most important engagement in the Pacific during World War II.” (Kowal) The Navajo Code Talkers were a major turning point during the war, without them the US would have had no ways to communicate movements or secrets. A Major once said that because of the Navajo Code Talkers, the Marines never would have taken Iwo Jima. The Japanese, who were skilled code breakers, could not
Who knew that such a small island could lead to the loss of so many? Approximately 70,000 Americans against 22,000 Japanese, the outcome was already known. The Battle of Iwo Jima was expected to last about 5 days according to “American intelligence”. It quickly escalated from February 16 until March 26 when the island was successfully captured by the Americans and victory was presented in the raising of the American flag. Every inch of Iwo Jima was known as a battleground and was also the only Marine battle where American casualties exceeded those of the Japanese. Although, a significant difference in soldiers was present, the Japanese put up a hard battle. (Cyril J. O’Brien, Military.com)

Star Camp was the largest of the five satellite camps, containing eighteen barracks. It held Jewish inmates that were appointed for exchange. These prisoners did not wear the usual concentration camp garbs but instead were allowed to wear their own clothes. However, they were forced to wear a yellow Star of David, which gave that camp the name of star camp.
The battle of Iwo Jima is an iconic event in which the United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese imperial army during World War II. Over twenty thousand Japanese defenders were hiding out in bunkers, caves and tunnels to avoid the massive naval and air bombardment lasting several days covering the entire island. The Japanese were outnumbered five to one but put up no surrender. The United States won the battle five days after it began securing their win with the flag placed atop Mt. Suribachi.
On February 19, 1942 president Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a document that would change people of Japanese descents lives for the next three years. Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the executive order of 9066, and it stated that anyone of Japanese descent would be put in an intern camp for the next three years. He did this to ease people's minds, telling them that nothing like the bombing of Pearl Harbor would ever happen again. Then, only a month later on March 21, 1942, they acted upon the order. They threw anyone of Japanese descent into a relocation camp for the next three years.
The most significant battle of World War II was the battle of Iwo JIma. The battle of Iwo Jima was the turning point of the war in the Pacific. The battle took place on an island of the Japanese imperial army. The war took five long bloody weeks and the United States of America won the island in the end. The island had the best strategic location, because the US army can position their bombers closer to the main Japanese island. Many believed that the island was costing too much American lives and wanted the troops to surrender.
