Peace Village ‘adult day camp’ scheduled April 26

Columbia Gorge Peace Village hosts an Adult Day Camp April 26 from 1-5:30 p.m. at Bethel UCC, White Salmon. It is based on the concept that “there’s a different story of who we are meant to be than the one that our current culture is telling us,” according to organizer Erika Rench.

Cost is $40 and 100 percent of ticket price goes to help fund Columbia Gorge Peace Village 2014. To register go to columbiagorgepeacevillage.com

Peace Village, held each August, is an interfaith, multicultural day camp providing a fun, educational environment in which children can learn the messages and practice of nonviolence and peacemaking from various world traditions.

In the April 26 half-day workshop, adults will experience a sampling of what kids do for a week each August as they cultivate skills for peaceful connections and interactions with self and others. These include natural world, Aikido and peaceful conflict resolution skills, media literacy and peaceful, playful communication practices.
