Why should kids have to choose between being makers and being movers?
Growing up, I loved the kinds of camps that had lots to make and lots of movement. So here it is: PEACE Out Loud, our version of a movers (sports, running, playing, jumping, climbing, dance, tumbling, gymnastics, circus and silly) and makers (coding, soldering, building, sewing, knitting and crafting) camp.
Every camp child has the time and space to celebrate the magic that is childhood. And, as part of every camp day, children are also taught valuable communication and conflict resolution skills on a peaceful communication and inclusion platform.

6/30-7/3 PEACE Out Loud Summer Camp first week! Camp Registration Form General
Week 1: June 30th-July 3rd: Plant and Animal Science
We love animals! This week we will spend some time learning about the animals in our neighborhood and in the world around us. We will also visit some of them and get to see and study how they live.
Week 2: July 7th-July 11th: Photo Effects
Say cheese! This week we will take pictures of everything we can find, print on sun paper, make our own photo montages, and learn about the art and science of photography. We will also visit a local photo lab.
Week 3: July 14th-18th: Money Makers
We will learn about the art and science of different types of economies, and set up our own local enterprise where the kids will get to make real money of their own. Lemonade stand? Button business? Bakery? The kids will decide, and learn about how to spend, share, invest and save.
Week 4: July 21s-July 25th: Water and Air
How do water and air work to power things? We will look at water systems and wind power, and this week we will build cardboard boats and attend a boat derby on Friday afternoon. We will also make kites (Berkeley Kite Festival is the weekend after camp, the 26th-27th).
Please note there is no camp from July 28th-August 1st.
Week 5: August 4th-8th: Sun and Moon
How do the sun and moon influence the earth? How do they work, and how can their power be harnessed? This week we will make solar powered robots and vehicles and visit tide pools.
Week 6: August 11th-15th: Rube Goldberg Week
Ever built a trail of dominoes just to watch them fall? Well, you and Rube could’ve been great friends! We will build all kinds of chain reactions to accomplish simple tasks, and we will visit the Lawrence Hall of Science.
Week 7: August 18th-22nd: Movie Makers
Get behind the camera to make your own moving picture short! We will have visiting artists who will help us to film and edit our pieces.
