Peace Camp!

Friday, June 28 – Sunday, June 30, Camp Peaceful Pines on Clark Fork Rd. off Hwy 108, $80

Come to the Modesto Peace/Life Center’s 31st annual Peace Camp in the Sierras June 28-30.

What do we look forward to? Stimulating workshops, great food, hikes, campfires, singing, talent show, children’s activities, crafts, table tennis, horseshoes, tetherball and other recreation, fresh air in a mountain setting, the wind in the pines and cedars, the starry night, the labyrinth, and creative and committed people of all ages.

Friday offers a hike for those who can leave early in the morning, spend the day hiking and arrive at camp in time for dinner. Hike leaders are John Lucas and Mike Chiavetta. A short hike will be available later in the weekend.

Rob Brittain coordinates Saturday’s workshop on economic and racial privilege. Rob is leading a group on a trip through the South to visit civil rights sites and to study privilege in early June. Scott Gifford returns to lead us in song.

At the 6,200-foot elevation in the Stanislaus National Forest near the Clark Fork of the Stanislaus River, Camp Peaceful Pines is located about 25 miles above Pinecrest off Hwy. 108. Surrounded by tall peaks, the camp is set in the forest and has a creek running through it. Sunrise Rock, with views of the river valley, is a short hike from camp.

The camp features kitchen and bathroom facilities, rustic cabins and platform tents and a cabin for those with special needs. Depending on the number of campers, cabins may be shared. Campers share in meal preparation, cleanup, and other work. Families and individuals are welcome.

The $80 fee covers program, food and lodging for the weekend. Young people 18 and under are $60. Ages 3 and under free. Minors need to be accompanied by an adult. Early registration, before June 2nd, entitles registrants to a $10 per person discount. Partial scholarships and day rates are also available. Campers may arrive after 2pm on Friday. The camp opens with supper at 6pm on Friday and closes after the morning workshop on Sunday. Directions and other information will be mailed to participants before camp.
