Peace Camp - Raising Our Voices!
Registration is now open for the Jane Addams Peace Camp, a one week day camp where we focus on peaceful ways to promote justice and resolve conflict, both for ourselves and in the world. This year we’ll center on the importance of the individual in camp, our community, the nation, and the world. The Jane Addams Peace Camp has been in operation for 10 years here in Santa Cruz and is part of a peace camp movement around the world.
It will be held at the beautiful rural Orchard School in Aptos, August 3rd - 7th, for girls and boys entering grades 1-6, and youth leaders ages 12 - 17. Campers will spend part of their day in small groups by age, part of the day self-selecting from a variety of activity choices, and part of the day with the entire camp. There will be a staff of experienced counselors and volunteers; parents are welcome to participate by helping with transportation, cooking, and arts and crafts.
Cost for the week will be $150, which includes all supplies, snack and lunch; scholarships are available by request.
