We have many traditions at Global Youth Village international summer camp. Folktale Night is a long-time tradition and a popular part of our evening programs. Villagers are divided into small groups and are handed costumes and a written folktale. After just an hour, they are asked to act out the folktale for the rest of the Village. There usually a lot of laughter and everyone gets a chance to act a little silly and express their creativity. Folktale night emphasizes cooperation and everyone learns something. Check out this short video of The Story of Colors, a Mexican folktale.
