PEACE HOUSE INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY
Peace House is an intentional community made up of two families. We use this beautiful space according to the seasons. During the school year, we bring kids inside to be together and work on their schoolwork. We have a great crew of loving volunteers (you could be one!) who support and encourage our young friends as they read, do homework or engage in some other mind-expanding pursuit. On Wednesdays, the teenagers not only do their homework; they also plan community service projects, do critical thinking exercises and have fascinating discussions about the issues that they face every day.
Summer at Peace House is a completely different animal. In the summer, we become the ultimate day camp! Our volunteers come out in force. We open all of our spaces to sports, arts and crafts, bike repair, cooking, music, dance, reading, math, science, and fun, fun, fun! Kids will go on field trips all around the area, to the beach or the forest, to a museum or a workshop, to a beauty school or a restaurant, or, if they’ve worked hard at their reading all summer, we’ll take them to our favorite bookstore to get a free book of their choice. It’s eight weeks of madcap fun- beautifully exhausting!
