What is Peace Camp?
Typically, La Verne Church of the Brethren sponsors a non-religious day camp, which takes place each July, designed fro Kindergartners – 5th grade. Peace topics are explored through art, drama, song, service projects, gardening and more. Due to Covid-19, and in an effort to protect the vulnerable in our community, Peace Camp will take place virtually this year.
We invite you to join us for Virtual Peace Camp: Imagining a More Peaceful Home. It will take place from July 27-31 in an interactive, online format. Children will gain tools to help communicate peacefully in their homes. Short videos and activities will take place throughout the week, virtually, and a Zoom Peace Party will take place on Friday, July 31. Virtual Peace Camp is free for those children residing in La Verne and surrounding areas. **If you live outside of La Verne, Claremont, Pomona, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga or San Dimas, please plan on making a donation to cover the shipping cost of your child’s Peace Camp supply box. You can do this through our home page by clicking on the PayPal button. Depending on your location $7-$10 should be enough for shipping.** If your child lives locally and you still want to donate, you can do so, as well. We will be making Peace Camp shirts ahead of time, so each participant will still receive their tie-dye Peace Camp shirt! An optional supply box will be distributed, as well.
