Children between the ages of 6 and 13 are eligible to attend. Young people aged 14 and 15 serve as junior counselors. The Counseling Staff are young adult leaders, ages 16 and up. Peace Village is an interfaith camp. Children from all spiritual and cultural traditions are welcome.
What do we do at Peace Village?
While each year is unique, all campers participate in Core Activities. These teach core concepts of Non-violent Conflict Resolution, Media Literacy, Earth Connections, Service, Movement, Music, Art, and Peace Heroes.
Campers also enjoy Village Fair activities which expand on themes of peace, the environment and nature, sustainability, food, and the arts. Possible Village Fair activities are Earth Connections, group games, ceramics, carpentry, veggie sculptures, sewing, recycled art, storytelling and much more.
All of these experiences are developmentally appropriate for the ages and model a deep respect for cultural and religious diversity. We celebrate that our children are nurtured by many faith traditions and welcome this opportunity to learn from each other.
What is the cost of camp?
We have three rate tiers to help meet the needs of all families. All rates include supplies, a camp t-shirt, daily snack, and lunch.
Who are the adult leaders?
The adults involved with Peace Village range from elementary, high school and college level educators to yoga teachers, artists, musicians, and religious leaders. In addition, parents, grandparents, and many wonderful community volunteers work at camp and behind the scenes to dream, plan, organize, and make camp happen. All are welcome, get involved today!
Because safety is our highest priority, all staff are trained in safe camp practices, we have adults certified in Emergency First Aid and CPR on site at all times, and we conduct background checks on all staff and volunteers.
