What is Peace Camp?
The La Verne Church of the Brethren sponsors a non-religious day camp, which takes place each July, designed for Kindergartners – 5th grade. Peace topics include non-violence, inner peace, global peace, advocacy, justice, and more. Students participate in hands-on activities such as planting in our community garden, cooking in our commercial kitchen, exploring open-ended art in our courtyard, working on tangible service projects for the community, and more. Peace Camp is a much-loved tradition and students in the community often come back to volunteer because of the lasting impact Peace Camp has had on their lives.
Peace Camp 2022 – Our Story of Peace
Peace Camp 2022 was amazing! Thanks to all who participated.
Peace Camp takes place every year in the month of July from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. It is designed for children entering kindergarten through 6th grade. We offer a Mini-Peace Camp option for children between the ages of 2 and 4, with a participant cap.
Our focus this year was children’s books and how we may also write our own peace stories in the world. Our service project entailed building and supplying a Little Free Library for the community. As usual, students explored peace concepts through open-ended art projects, cooking, gardening, and more!
Peace Camp registration is now closed. If you’d like to sign your student up for 2023, please email email@example.com for more information.
