For the past three years, UCG has sponsored Peace Village, a day camp for K-6th grade students. In this year's week-long camp, kids will develop skills in building peace with themselves, peace with others, peace with nature, and peace in the world. They'll participate in music, art, games, and conversation.
This year’s Peace Village will be June 24th-27th, 9am-12pm. Peace Village is open to students in K-6th grade. The cost is $25/child or $45/family and we have scholarships available! Please make checks out to The United Church of Granville. The daily schedule will include a peace story, peacemaking lesson, snack, a craft or activity, and music! Kids will develop skills in building peace with themselves, peace with others, peace with nature, and peace in the world.

Children's Church and Kid's Club
During worship (and up until 12:15), nursery care is available for infants & toddlers. Lower elementary students are invited, after the Children's Conversation in morning worship, to attend a Children's Church program which lasts until about 11:00.
Children and youth (4th-8th graders) will be meeting for a Confirmation/Baptism class from 11:30-12:15 most Sundays from February 4th through mid-May. This will be a time of sharing our thoughts about our spritual lives, and learning some of the basics of a progressive vision of Christianity. Field trips included!
High School Youth
Our high schoolers meet periodically throughout the year for a variety of activities including pool parties, cookouts, special service projects, and youth camp. A well-loved tradition for UCG high schoolers is to participate in the week-long, Baptist Youth Camp at Laurel Hills Moravian Camp in the hills of rural North Carolina in late June or early July each year. Many of our high schoolers also participate in the regular two-week long mission brigade to Rancho Ebenezer, a teaching "eco-farm" in rural Nicaragua.
Each summer our rising 7th-12th graders have the opportunity to participate in Baptist Youth Camp, an enriching week spent with friends from around the country. Our youth leader joins with leaders from other progressive churches to craft this week of fun and spiritual enrichment in the rolling hills of western North Carolina.
UCC Camps and Activities
Throughout the year, middle and high school students are able to participate in regional retreats organized by the Central Southeast Ohio Association of the United Church of Christ.
