Kids4Peace Vermont will hold its third annual interfaith camp this summer, July 6th - July 15th, 2012 at the Bishop Booth Conference Center in Burlington, VT.
The application process includes:
1) a short questionnaire on the child's understanding of peace and interest in participating in this program
2) a family and child interview with camp directors/advisors.
Upon acceptance into the program, each family will be asked to make a firm commitment to participate in several pre-camp orientation meetings through the late Winter/Spring months. Over the following year, there will also be opportunities for post-camp activities which will further deepen the recognition and depth of each child's camp experience.
Tuition: is $750, inclusive of pre and post camp activities.
