Peace Playhouse At Camas Friends Is Upon Us

For the past 3 years Camas Friends has been putting on a 3 day camp for young people called Peace Playhouse. Instead of offering the standard vacation Bible school the Camas Quakers put their heads together and created a camp that focuses on learning how to have peace with self, with others and with the earth. Through various activities such as gardening, art, singing, yoga, journaling and other hands on activities we work with young people to help them learn skills for living peaceful lives.
