Camp at a Glance

We are excited to present a unique In Person camp again this year. A camp week will be mornings 8:30-1:30. CAMP WILL BE LIMITED TO 40 CAMPERS per week. Campers will be in a small group with similar age campers and a leader that will stay together for the week. Although there will be more whole group camp time! We will stay outside for most of the time but will be able to be inside more often this year. The children will be creating their own space in the forest and in the meeting house as they practice finding the beauty of peace, learning peacemaking skills, singing and creating! A mid morning snack will be provided. Campers will bring a lunch from home. A more concise schedule and detailed info will be available and sent to participants closer to camp date.

Join us for a one week day camp. You will learn peacemaking and conflict resolution skills, sing songs, create crafts and art projects, learn cooperative games and team building activities.

At the beginning of the week the campers and staff will create a “peace treaty” which we will agree on and sign and use as a set of guidelines to live by throughout the week. Campers will understand that they have a roll in the quality and safety of their environment.

There will be week long learning with regard to this years theme, “The joy of peace!…and the work”

All week we will be practicing “put-ups” which are the opposite of “put-downs” or “fouls”. We will practice communicating with compassion, empathy, and tolerance.

We will have some sort of end of week culmination, more details to follow..

Family Involvement

At the end of every day of camp, each camper will get a “Peacemakers Seed.” This is a summary of what we did at camp that day and ideas about practicing peacemaking skills at home. Like “homework,” Peacemakers’ Day Camp encourages daily peacemaking exercise.

In order for a child to attend Peacemakers’ Day Camp, the family must contribute. You can give money $50 or ($25-$75 per camper, sliding scale based on what you can afford), donate your time during the week, or bring snacks and juice for all campers on one day of the camp. (Individual wrapped)

At noon on Friday, campers parade to Kern park for a picnic. Families are encouraged to join us and watch group presentations as well as our closing “Bells of Peace” dance.

Stay tuned for what we will do on Friday this year!

Each camper is presented with a certificate of completion showing them to be a Peacemaker.

Camp costs $50 or $25-$75 for the week sliding scale. There are also options to supply food and drinks for snack, or volunteer in some other way instead. Please contact us to arrange volunteering or donations.
