PEACE CAMP


Peace Camp is a one week summer program designed to help children learn how to be peacemakers in God's world. Children have fun and make new friends while learning how to find peace through yoga and prayer, non-violent conflict resolution, multicultural appreciation, the arts, care of creation, and more. Each day begins with a Bible story that teaches us about peace. Each year's program includes a one-day field trip. Peace Camp is open to all kids entering 1st through 6th grades. 


Important information about this year's Peace Camp can be found below.


IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Due to ongoing concerns about the transmission of COVID-19, plans for Peace Camp 2020 are currently suspended. Please check back here for opportunities to engage peace making in a different way this summer! 

We continue to find ways to build peace from our homes. Blessings!

Peace Camp Video

The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago produced this beautiful video, highlighting Bethlehem's Peace Camp as an example of how congregations can reach into their community. 






Love your neighbor was held June 24-28. 


This year's theme was "Love Your Neighbor." Peace Camp participants learned ways to show love to their neighbors across the street, across the city, across the country, and across the world. We enjoyed a visit from a firefighter, learned African Dance, spoke via video messenger with neighbors in Liberia, explored creation at Irons Oaks, and enjoyed daily classes on art, conflict resolution, and yoga. See you next year!
