CVFM held another successful session of Peace Camp in August. This year Peace Camp included 12 6-8 year olds. They were energetic, curious, kind, and conscientious. The focus for the week was Building Peace by Caring for the Earth.  Each day had a different theme and focus, including water, soil, wind, plants, and energy. Most days included a field trip to nearby sites, ending with the planting of a tree and Central Park on Friday.

This summer the Meeting hosted its first Vacation Peace School with great success. From August 7-11, we spent morning in the company of 10 energetic children, exploring peace through story, meditation, and song; pursuing creative projects; painting and erecting a peace pole; and enjoying one another’s company. The children participated in cooperative games both outside and inside, enjoyed dances from around the world, and brightened the sidewalks in front of the Meetinghouse with chalk drawings.

On Feb. 15, 2017, the Governor of North Dakota ordered an immediate evacuation of the Standing Rock Water Protectors, who have been living in a camp to make a stand against the construction of the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline.  The water protectors, along with their supporters around the world, have been protesting since last year to prevent the construction of the pipeline, which endangers sacred areas of tribal land and poses a threat to the purity of the main water source of the Standing Rock tribe, as well as the Missouri River itself.
