Placer People of Faith Together
Growing Peace Camp, 2014 was held August 4-8th, at Alta Vista Charter School, serving 37 children (ages 5 to 11) under the umbrella sponsorship of Placer People of Faith Together. A peace camp has been operating in the Auburn area since the 1980’s. Camp goers practiced yoga, drumming, painting, constructed solar ovens, played community organizing games, interviewed local representatives and did much more to understand the many aspects of peace: within, with each other, in the world, in the environment and in the community. A big thank you to the camp organizers-Natalie Pohley and Leslye Janusz!
