Peace Camp is an experience in which children gain knowledge, skills and tools to meet conflict and violence they see in the World. God’s peace manifests itself in each person first, and that peace spreads to family, school, community, nation, WORLD. Peace Camp provides children the experience of intentionally finding peace within themselves, meeting conflict in their world with love, identifying “peace” heroes in their lives and throughout history, and learning about differing cultures and religions – focusing on our commonalities. Cooperative games, art, and children’s literature and more are incorporated in Peace Camp.
This workshop is a “lab” where participants will observe and participate as they wish. Ideas will be offered for customizing a Peace Camp to your setting and the resources available in your community. You will also gain practical information such as monetary and volunteer expenditure needed to run a Peace Camp in your community and a sample schedule for daily rotations at camp.
