Camp was formerly scheduled for the week of June 17th and will now be moved back one week. Peace and Nature Camp is a one-week day-camp at People’s Church that runs M-F, June 24-28, 9am – 4pm and is open to all children ages 7-12 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. Look for a short presentation about camp during the April 28th Earth Day Service. Registration begins April 28th. Registration forms will be available in the foyer at the camp display board and online starting April 28th. The cost of camp is $120 per camper. Registration ends June 2nd. Scholarships are available if registered by May 26th. Camp tends to fill quickly, register early.
