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.
