Making Meaningful Connections

The opportunities we have available for children, youth, families and adults of all ages to connect with one another are abundant at this time. As the weather warms, there will be more chances for connecting with one another outside on our beautiful church grounds in various ways.

Seven high school youth and I attended the first regional UU youth conference in two years at the UU Church of Muncie, IN. These youth are excited to help plan and lead the Youth Bridging Service scheduled for June 5. The Religious Education Committee is hosting a Volunteer Appreciation reception after church also on June 5 with cookies and punch to thank our RE volunteers. I hope you’ll mark your calendars not to miss this special day!

We are so thankful that Gay Walker and Cory Zann led wonderful Weaving activities with the children. Cory brought her loom so the children could experience weaving on it in addition to making God’s Eyes and weaving onto the bike wheels.

After two years of not being able to connect with one another in person, I appreciate the chance to be together at church even more. I hope to see you all soon!

Blessed Be, Diane Melvin, Director of Religious Education

What is Peace and Nature Camp?

Peace and Nature Camp is a one-week day-camp at People’s Church that is open to all children ages 6-12 years old.

Kids will enjoy a week of outdoor activities: exploring our church grounds, taking nature walks, building forts in the woods, going on a day trip to the Kalamazoo Nature Center, and splashing on the slip-and-slide, as well as daily music, art, mindfulness practice, science experiments, and lots of fun with church friends

Camp is a way for children to be outdoors together and interact peacefully and cooperatively with each other and nature through hands on activities. It gives children a chance to relax in a safe environment and learn how to be comfortable in the woods and with their peers. Camp seeks to strengthen each child’s connection with the natural world and the wisdom it contains. These experiences in turn allow them to shape their own values regarding peace and nature.

How much does it cost? 

These are the costs for camp this year:
One child: $150 for the week
Additional siblings: $125 each

$15 per week for before-hours care (7:30-9am)
$15 per week for after-hours care (4-5:30pm)
$25 per week for both before/after hours care
