Young People Making Peace Summer Camp
The Lehigh-Pocono Committee of Concern (LEPOCO) will hold their annual Young People Making Peace summer day camp, from 9 a.m. to noon, July 18 through 22, at the First Presbyterian Church, in Allentown. The camp comprises five mornings of stories, songs, games, crafts and learning activities related to the broad topic of peace and justice, for children ages 5 through 14 that have completed kindergarten to sixth grade plus peace training for seventh and eighth graders.
The camp is sponsored by the LEPOCO Peace Center and the Center for Humanistic Change. LEPOCO is a non-profit citizens group of nearly 1000 members, primarily in the Lehigh Valley area of eastern Pennsylvania. LEPOCO members share a vision that we can build a sane and more just world. Gathering strength from our diversity, we work together and as individuals for nonviolent change, starting in our own community.
