Join us each July for a unique camp experience that helps youngsters (ages 6-10) explore peacebuilding concepts through nature. Each day our own bus will take us to Woodberry Crossing, an educational farm in Parkton, MD where children will explore over 100 acres of woods, fields, paths, and streams. The Center is filled with wildflowers, plants, birds, butterflies, and farm animals including donkeys, emus, sheep, goals, turkeys, chickens, and alpacas.
In this peaceful environment, children will enjoy swimming, hiking, stream-walking, gardening, and caring for animals. While having fun, we will explore ways to be peaceful citizens through crafts, storytelling, cooperative games, and skits. Children will make healthy choices about respecting themselves and others, caring for the environment and understanding the interdependence of all things, being a friend, and helping others.
