Peace Village

Summer Day Camp

 

Price and enrollment information

Dear families, 

 

After some hard conversations, we have decided to cancel this year's Peace Village Summer Camp.  

 

We are sad to have canceled, but the uncertainty of the current health crisis was making it difficult to purposefully plan and execute a viable camp experience - and we want nothing less than a great experience for campers at our Peace Village. 

 

We have already begun planning for an amazing camp experience for summer 2021 and hope that you all will join us then.

Registration is now open for the 2nd annual Peace Village Middle School Leadership Camp, August 10th-14th, 2020. Sponsored through a partnership with EdenAcres Environmental Education and the Rotary Clubs of Forest Grove

Open to students entering grades six through nine, Peace Village teaches skills in conflict resolution, empathy, creating inner-peace, connecting with the natural world,  and collaborative leadership through engagement in hands-on activities such as art, games, music, service learning projects, and field trips. The program centers its activities on non-competitive play and the exploration of media.

Special activities this year include a field trip and service-learning project at local natural areas; harvesting, preparing, cooking, and eating sustainably grown food at Nana Cardoon Urban Farm; and discovering mindfulness through the Japanese art of origami. Camp will close with a day of reflection and celebration where the whole family can come and share in what their children have been learning! 

The Peace Village program focuses on four pillars designed to create community-minded youth:

  • mindfulness (a focus on self)

  • media literacy (focusing on how media impacts us)

  • connection to nature (a focus on how to live in harmony with nature)

  • conflict resolution (a focus on how to address and resolve conflict)

 

Peace Village Summer Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday - Friday, and will take place at both the Forest Grove United Church of Christ, 2032 College Way, and on the Pacific University campus. The camp is $180 and scholarships are available. Snacks are provided, campers bring their own lunch.
