New Partner Organization and New Format for Culture Camp Summer Camp:
Summer 2016: the Culture Company has partnered with the Community Church of Vero Beach, a United Church of Christ church that collaborated with Crossover Mission to create a new format for the stand-alone version of Culture Camp. Called Peace Camp, the program met once a week for five weeks, and ran from 4:30 to 7:30, including dinner. The 75 campers explored 4 world cultures and the Culture of Peace and had a great time doing it.
