Peace Camp: A Free Summer Day Camp in August for Kids

  • Peace Camp is a wonderful opportunity for children, by which they can truly learn about and explore the world as a "follower of Jesus."
  • This ministry is led by professional educators and volunteers. We aim to teach children about peace and instill healthy ways of living with their fellow humans and to honor the earth (our environment). This is done through fun lessons, arts and crafts and building individual relationships with the children and families we serve.
  • Peace Camp generally starts each morning at 9:30 a.m. and runs until 11:30 a.m. It is free for children ages 5-12. Breakfast for the children is included, as well as a morning snack. For the last few years individuals have donated lunch for the kids. Donations are always welcome. We live in an area where food insecurity impacts a good number of families.
  • The lesson learning and various activities throughout the week of Peace Camp are devoted to helping children see the world as a place that is filled with joy, harmony, wonder, love, and peace.
  • Our lessons also help children develop the knowledge and ability to bring and build these qualities into their own lives and the lives of those around them.
  • During the week of Peace Camp children are involved in projects and activities that help them fully investigate and discover what a world filled with peace really means to them.
  • Children may be baking loaves of bread that represent the holy bread of life or creating and building a wall mosaic that illustrates peace around the world. They may design ornamental crafts to help beautify the world and remind us that peace is possible or they might write and act in a play that sets the stage for bringing more peace closer to their friends and family and in our neighborhoods.
This summer Peace Camp will be held from August 17-22, 2015. Join us!
