Time to register for Peace Camp 2018!

To register, click here: PEACE CAMP REGISTRATION

“Justice” is the theme this summer for Peace Camp 2018.  This is an alternative day camp from 9am – 3pm, for children ages 5-18.  The focus will be on developing inner peace and building problem solving skills.  Yoga, gardening, special guests, using puppets co-operative games, and cooking are some of the activities planned.  Youth who are 13 and older will have a curriculum that deals with gun control, racism, LGBTQ issues, PTSD, and other more mature topics. Although several sessions are at churches, the camp is not religious. Volunteers are needed in all areas – if you are interested please contact Judy Hoffhien at judithhoffhien@sbcglobal.net

With violence permeating our culture, let’s make teaching peace a priority!
