UPDATE: Peace and Nature Camp is now full.  If your child would like to be put on a waiting list in case someone drops out, please contact Camp Director Jeff Kirkwood at 269-623-2932 or

Peace and Nature Camp is a one-week day-camp at People’s Church that runs M-F, June 22-26, 9am – 4pm and is open to all children ages 6-12 years old.   This includes an all-day field trip to the Kalamazoo Nature Center on Thursday of that week. 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.

Registration forms are now available HERE and in the foyer at the camp display board. The cost of camp is $110 per camper if registered by May 24th. After that, the fee is $120 and final registration is June 7th. Scholarships are available if registered by May 24th.

If you have any questions, are interested in helping with camp or would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund please contact me at 269-623-2932 or

Thank You,
Jeff Kirkwood
Peace and Nature Camp Director
