Ariel Children's Camp in Uganda.
The Ariel Children's Camp is a week-long camp in Uganda for children living with HIV, sponsored by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The camp is named for Elizabeth Glaser’s daughter, Ariel, who passed away from AIDS-related illnesses in 1988. The theme of the January 2010 Ariel Camp is, "Join the Moment: Create a Generation Free of HIV."
Children between the ages of 12 and 18, together with counselors and Foundation staff, will gather at the Wild Life Centre in Entebbe, Uganda, to participate in volleyball, football, netball, journal-writing, and other fun activities. The children will also organize a talent show and, most importantly, learn about HIV and share their feelings about what it's like to grow up with the virus.
During the camp, EGPAF-Uganda will launch its 20th-anniversary song: "Someday," by Sylver Kyagulanyi. The song features several popular Ugandan musical artists, as well as members of the Uganda Ariel Children's Clubs.
