Peace Camp will be back in person this year! Kids entering grades 1-6 are invited to join us for a week of fun as we learn how to be peacemakers in the world.
This year, each day of camp will focus on one of the five "healing gestures": listen, comfort, celebrate, collaborate, and inspire. After two years of stress and enormous challenges, we hope that camp will be a place of healing, as well as a place where kids get the tools to help others heal.
A typical day at Peace Camp includes games, art, a peace circle, age-appropriate classes on healthy communication and conflict resolution skills, yoga, and activities designed to celebrate diversity. The week includes special events, such as a Thursday field trip to Irons Oaks Environmental Learning Center.
Peace Camp is staffed by volunteers who love helping kids learn to be peace makers!
This year Peace Camp is a collaborations between Bethlehem Lutheran Church and Morgan Park Presbyterian Church. All are invited to attend!
Monday, August 1 - Friday, August 5, 9 AM - 2 PM, $50 per child (Scholarships available)
