Peace Camp

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 for more information.

Peace Camp Book Drive Wish List: As part of our service project, we are collecting new and gently used peace and justice-themed books for our Little Free Library and to donate to a local elementary school. To see what type of books we are in search of and to donate a book visit:
