Peace Camp at the Library Promotes Kindness and Peace 

 

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.
