Registration Opens for Peace Village Day Camp
Registration is now open for the July 30-Aug. 3 session of Peace Village Newport, a summer day camp for students entering grades 1-6.
The Peace curriculum offers students practical skills of conflict resolution, media literacy, and ecology, as well as music, art, and craft activities. A total of 45 students will be accepted for the week’s 9 AM to 3:30 PM program and they will be divided into three age groups, each with adult and teen leaders.
This five-day Summer Camp for Peacemakers began in Lincoln City in 1996 and now operates programs in many states. The Peace Village program involves teachers and students of many life and faith backgrounds. It also offers students a comprehensive view of the messages and practices of peace from many world traditions.
Adult and teen volunteers are needed as well. Those with experience in working with elementary age students, and those with skills in crafts, music, or movement are encouraged to join the all-volunteer team at Peace Village.
Cost for the week-long program is $60 and includes program materials, a Peace Village T-shirt, and daily snacks. Limited scholarship assistance is available. To request an application, call Kathy DeMeyer at 1-503-930-7479 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
