Now in its sixth year, Columbia Gorge Peace Village has received its first grant from the Portland-based Jubitz Family Foundation. Jubitz funding priorities include strengthening families, fostering peace and respecting the natural environment.
Columbia Gorge Peace Village, open for children ages 6-13, will run Aug. 5 - 9 at the Mosier Community School, and has expanded to 150 campers.
Bill Weiler, part of the Peace Village Planning Team, states that “There are still a few openings left for anyone who would love a unique day-camp experience.”
Columbia Gorge Peace Village is also seeking contributions from anyone who believes in the program’s mission of teaching the practices of non-violence and peace-making from the world’s traditions.
The 2013 camp’s theme is “Healthy Habits, Healthy Habitats” and will focus on “service,” helping others both at camp and at home. Uniquely, all parents who sign up their children for Peace Village have agreed to perform three hours of service either at camp or within their community.
