Shrine School Holiday Program

Peace. Learn to make paper cranes…

Join us for this hands-on play and making session. Getting along with other people is sometimes hard, no matter who you are. Classmates and family members don’t always see eye to eye. But adults and children around the world have come up with lots of ways to tackle these problems.

Whether you find it, keep it or make it, peace is something we all hope to have in our lives.

Learn how the Shrine was designed to remember the laying down of arms, experience our Peace Gallery, and make paper cranes with us in a collective meditation upon peace.
