Hour of Silence

This week LifeCamp participated in an hour of silence.  It was so quiet!  Why did Mr. Franz want campers to get silent?  Camp Times reporters, Brianna, Leah, and Sania, caught up with Mr. Franz to get the inside scoop.

Why did LifeCamp have an hour of silence?
1) To hear nature and see nature
2) To provide a quiet time and place for yoga.
3) Reduces loud voices
4) Tests self control of campers
5) Teachers people that there are other ways to communicate
