learning peacemaking outdoors

Peace Works: SUMMER 2019

Empowering the Next Generation of Peacemakers


Camp Eder provides a fun, enriching, spiritual, and biblically-based camp experience for campers of all ages. Peace is a prayer for some and a life’s work for others. It’s a blessing we share with others and 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!

From wacky science experiments, games, indoor crafts, and Bible study, you're camper will have a blast at Camp Eder! All camps include (most importantly) study and experiences to help campers learn more about themselves and God. To God be the Glory!
