Peace Camp Thursday & Photos of Campers

Here are some photos of our Guadalupe River Park Conservancy Field Trip last Thursday and head shots of peace campers I took.  The photographs were turned into their own personal puppets.

Friday at Peace Camp

Dear Peace Camp Families & Leaders,

Thanks for sharing a fun and inspiring week of peace making together.  It was a pleasure making new friends and getting  to know familiar ones even better!  It is not to early to think about next year’s peace camp.  Reserve the dates for Monday, June 13-Friday, June 17, 2016.

And if you believe in this work of helping our children to bring peace principles into their lives and communities then why wait until next June!?!  Let me know if you would like to participate in our San Jose Kids for Peace chapter.

Have a wonderful summer!

Blessings of peace to us all!

Geoff Rimositis

Wednesday at Peace Camp

Our theme today was kindness.  Campers heard the story the Kindness Quilt and made their own kindness quilt panels that showed what kindness meant to them.

We then went on our first field trip to the Children’s Discovery Museum.  We took the light rail which was fun and then we had lunch out on Discovery Meadow, played some games and headed into the museum where delight and laughter reigned supreme!

Monday at the 2015 San Jose U.U. Mosaic Peace Camp

Today’s Peace Camp was brought to you by the letter “P.”   Our theme was to use our words to speak in a kind way.  We had a great time in our tribe groups hearing stories and talking about what empties or fills our buckets.  What are the words and actions that do it?  Campers even decorated their own bucket!  Here are photos of the children in their small groups (tribes) and playing in St. James Park.
