|Murals By Incarcerated Parents And Their Children On Display In Concord|
|By nhpr.org- Peter Biello & Leila Goldstein|
On display right now at the Kimball-Jenkins Estate in Concord is a series of 12 murals. Each tells a story of a perfect day with mom or dad, and they were painted during a special summer camp for families dealing with incarceration. NHPR’s Peter Biello spoke with Kristina Toth, the program administrator for the Department of Corrections’ Family Connection Center.
Tell us about the summer camp portion, because it's different from what we normally imagine a summer camp to be. What makes it different?
This summer camp program is held at the YMCA Camp Spaulding in Penacook, New Hampshire. Children who have a parent who is incarcerated in the state prison and is involved in the Family Connection Center, they can go to camp for free for two weeks and they do the regular camp activities: horseback riding, archery, camp fires.
