The Associated Press

OTISFIELD, Maine — Nearly 200 teenagers from seven Middle Eastern nations and the U.S. have arrived in Maine for the 19th Seeds of Peace summer camp.

Tucked in western Maine, the camp brings together teenagers from countries that are considered enemies to attend dialogue sessions and conflict resolution activities. They also enjoy traditional summer camp activities.

The teens who began the summer session on Wednesday join more than 4,000 who have gone before them.

Campers include Israelis and Palestinians, as well as teens from Egypt, Jordan, India, Pakistan and the U.S. An Afghan delegation failed to make it because of logistical problems.
