The Kelly Campers were named for pioneering peacemaker and Harry McKillop Irish Spirit Award recipient, Jean Kelly. The Kelly Camper Program launched in 2017 offering opportunities for international fun, friendship and leadership development, with a distinctive American flair. Following up on that week in Belfast at Camp Camilla, 21 youth from Northern Ireland and America met in Dallas to continue the leadership through service experience. Led by staffers from both America and Northern Ireland, the campers volunteered at a variety of projects. The focus for several was young children’s literacy (Mi Escuelita), clean water for the world (Paper for Water), and pediatric brain cancer research (Alex’s Lemonade Stands). In the evening the group heard from a range of speakers who are making a positive difference in the world. We believe that the sky will be the limit for these young people and the difference they will continue to make in the world. connect 2018 • 21
