2022 Peace Camp Registration, and More Info Here! Please mark your calendars for the first two weeks of August, M-F: Session A, 8/1-8/5, and Session B, 8/8-8/12, 2022. Be the first to sign up when registration opens by joining the Religious Exploration announcements email list! This long-standing First UU day camp is facilitated by beloved teacher Jen Bojanowski and other folks from our community.
Every day—in so many ways—we are reminded that we live in a world of conflict. Help your children explore ideas of negotiating a world that is challenging in terms of conflict, discrimination, and esteem…. by sending them to First UU’s Peace Camp. There we explore ideas of peace-making “Within, Among, and Between.”
In the span of a week, children will experience many peaceful practices, including developing a sense of community, problem-solving, meditating, singing, walking in nature, and more. In these ways, our “peace kids” will start to build their own paths towards peaceful living.
The suggested registration fee is $100 per child, but know that what you are able to pay is not a barrier to participation! Families who are able to are encouraged to give a little extra, to help extend participation to those with financial need. Our biggest camp expense is fair pay for our beloved teachers.
