Summer Camps, Bible Schools, and Day Camps are invited to participate in the observance of the  anniversary of Hiroshima & Nagasaki by incorporating Thousand Crane origami crafts into their program. Essentially each camp would have their students make peace cranes, learn about the dangers nuclear weapons pose today and engage in activities that would alert them to the benefits of working for world peace.  The children will be able to hand out their cranes at several events commemorating the Hiroshima Nagasaki catastrophe. See the Peace flag offer on our home page which can be presented in conjunction with the children presenting the cranes to their local congregation on August 6th.


Camp counselors can contact peacelongbeach@optonline.We have lots of ideas as to how lesson plans and craft projects can be introduced into a summer day school setting for students of all ages. Camp directors can also call 631-385-3250 for further information. Or go to google and type in 1000 Crane Club for directions on crane origami

 "War destroys. And we must cry out for peace.
Peace sometimes gives the idea of stillness, but it is never stillness.
It is always an active peace.
I think that everyone must be committed in the matter of peace,
to do everything that they can,
what I can do from here.
Peace is the language we must speak."
Pope Francis
