OTISFIELD, Maine — Maine’s secretary of state is speaking to campers at Maine’s Seeds of Peace summer camp.

Charles Summers will meet with campers Thursday to discuss his role as secretary of state and the importance of civic duty.

Campers this season have included Israelis and Palestinians, as well as others from Egypt, Jordan, India, Pakistan and the U.S.
