Peace Camp

Monday June 5 – Friday June 9, 2023

9 AM – 3 PM

The Interfaith Center for Peace and Justice will host our 32nd Peace Camp at Vida Charter School (120 East Broadway). Drop off is at 9:00 AM and pick up is at 3:00 PM. Melissa Rosenberger is this year’s Peace Camp Director.

The camp is open to children ages 6 to 12.

This year’s theme is: “I Am Peace.”

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.

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.
