ALLEGANY — While Canticle Farm staff stayed busy working with crops Wednesday, children in the Camp Creation program were busy rehearsing an Indian stick dance in a nearby field.

Organizers of the four-day program said the camp’s purpose is to teach children about protecting creation in addition to learning about other cultures. Now in its second year, the program is held at Canticle Farm on South Nine Mile Road. Canticle Farm is community-supported agriculture farm sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany.
