‘Peace Works’ is theme for 2019 youth camps

For the 2019 youth and family summer camps at N-Sid-Sen, the theme of the curriculum will be “Peace Works - Empowering the Next Generation of Peacemakers.”

The curriculum is an ecumenical project created by Inside Out, which the PNC has been using for several years.

“I particularly love this theme,” said Kaila Russell, chair of the Outdoor Ministry Task Force.  “Our world needs peace and peacemakers.”

An overview of the curriculum says that “peace is a prayer for some and a life’s work for others. It’s a blessing we share with others and a longing within each of our hearts. Scripture is filled with the stories of peace and justice and camp is the perfect place to share them. Peace isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth the effort, because we know that peace works!”

Kaila encourages churches to begin recruiting youth to go to camp this summer.

Intermediate and Junior High Camps will be July 7 to 13.

Kids Camp is July 14 to 17, overlapping a few days with Senior High Camp, which will be July 14 to 20,

Registration will be online at
