PEACE CAMP 2021
“BUILDING PEACEFUL COMMUNITIES”
JULY 26-JULY 30, 2021 from 8:30/9:00 AM to 3:00/3:30PM
Vida Charter School (120 EAST BROADWAY)
The Interfaith Center for Peace and Justice will host our 30th Peace Camp from July 26 to July 30, 2021 at Vida Charter School (120 East Broadway). Drop off is between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM and pick up is between 3:00 and 3:30 PM.
Melissa Rosenberger is the Peace Camp Director this year and has planned a wonderful week of programming and fun.
The camp is open to children ages 6 to 12. Camp enrollment is capped at 30 children this year and first time Peace Campers will be given registration priority.
The year’s theme is “Building Peaceful Communities.” Through interactive games, crafts, music, stories, food, and meditation, participants will spend their days focusing on various ways that we can practice mindfulness, engage in good dialogue, celebrate diversity, and resolve conflicts as we build community. Daily highlights include:
The Opening Ceremony
Salsa on the “Square”
Ambassadors for a Day
Peace Camp is a free summer camp program. Donations are always welcome. We suggest a donation of $35 per family to help us cover costs; however, no child will be excluded from Peace Camp for financial reasons.
Children with special needs may be accompanied by a sign language translator, TSS, or other adult helper.
*We ask children to pack a brown bag lunch for each day.
