Camp PEACE is one of our most important programs. Working with children is a vital component of our mission to end domestic violence and were we devastated by the thought of not holding camp this summer. So we did what we do best: rolled up our sleeves, got creative, and created something beautiful for the families we serve.
Camp PEACE kits
Our Camp PEACE kits were created to help meet the needs of families and to promote the goals of Camp PEACE. The kits contain social-emotional activities, peace education projects, and other trauma-informed fun that aims to build resiliency in kids while staying at home. These kits target five major themes: technology, science, self-care, art, and calm down strategies.
Phase two was the launch of our new virtual learning site. On the site, campers have access to virtual programming and earn incentives for engagement.
Socially Distanced Field Trips
Phase three is to incorporate small, socially distanced field trips of 10 or less people in open-air environments. The feasibility of the phase depends on current health and safety guidelines for the metro area.
