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

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

Now in its 19th year, Seeds of Peace is a lakeside camp in Otisfield that brings together teenagers from conflict zones around the world in hopes of helping them move beyond deep-rooted hatreds.

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