People of the World Summer Camp


  • The Lab for Hands-On Learning and Exploration 1431 Colorado Blvd Los Angeles, California 90041 (map)

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD is a week long summer camp for kids grades TK-3 covering why people move around the world as refugees.

Through storytelling, activities, and food, students get an immersive, honest, and age-appropriate understanding of immigration and how we can welcome resettling Angelenos.

Each day we focus on a different element of migration, allowing students to contextualize and incorporate what they learn.

Sessions are bookended with a reading of the People of the World story and a snack from a place in the world we discussed that week.

Over the course of the week, each student designs a home that is meaningful to them, illustrating in pictures and words the people, things, places, words, feelings, and foods that make them feel at home.

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD is led by Miry Whitehill, founder of Miry’s List, Eagle Rock Elementary parent, and long time friend of The Lab for Hands-On Learning.
