Church of the Brethren

OPEN TO CHILDREN AGES 6 TO 12 *
TEENS MAY APPLY TO SERVE AS JUNIOR COUNSELORS
First time campers will be given registration priority. Peace Camp can accommodate 50 campers and 10 Junior Counselors. 

Peace Camp is a free summer camp program. Through interactive games, crafts, music, stories, food, and meditation, participants will spend their days focusing on ways to promote peace everyday.

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.

Students ages 13 to 16 are encouraged to apply to serve as Junior Counselors.
Volunteers 16+ and Parents are needed as Teachers, Helpers, and Special Presenters.

Children with special needs may be accompanied by a sign language interpreter, TSS, or other adult helper.

We ask children to pack a brown bag lunch for each day.

Registration is now open – and will stay open from March 6, 2018 until May 18, 2018.

It is first-come-first-served with one exception: first time campers will be given registration priority.

ICPJ will also maintain a waiting list and will contact all families who apply by May 18, 2018 of their registration status – and ICPJ will continue to contact families after May 18 if there are openings, which happens every year. Peace Camp can accommodate 50 Peace Campers and 10 Junior Counselors.

The goal of ICPJ is to reach the most number of children possible
throughout Adams County.
