Bethlehem Lutheran Church (ELCA) and Beverly Branch Library will partner to offer Peace Camp at the Library, Saturdays July 17 and Aug. 7, 10:30 a.m. to noon at the library, 1962 W. 95th St.
Designed for children ages three to nine, Peace Camp brings a message of peace and friendship to the community. Each event will focus on a peace-themed book and a include a related activity and an art project. The events will also be connected to the library’s Summer Reading Challenge (register for the challenge at chipublib.org/events).
Bethlehem’s Peace Camp program, established eight years ago, aims to teach children how to be peace makers by focusing on four core elements: non-violent conflict resolution strategies; care for and appreciation of the environment; acceptance and understanding of others; and self-awareness and calmness through yoga.
Children are invited to join in for great story times and activities all designed to promote a positive message of kindness and peace.
