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 and ends 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 children entering grades 1 - 6. Registration usually begins in April and camp fills up quickly! We hope you will consider being part of next summer's Peace Camp! See pictures of past years of Peace Camp here.

The Peaceable Kingdom
"The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them." (Isaiah 11:6)
Isaiah describes a world in which all creatures live together in harmony. This year at Peace Camp children will learn how to treat one another and all creatures with the justice and respect that lead to peace. Many of our activities will be focused on animals: how to treat them with kindness, as well as how they teach us about peace.
