Peace Camp provides children (ages 4-14) with the opportunity to explore cooperation and conflict resolution in safe and supportive environments. Peace camp has always been about creating inclusive environments where campers, counselors and staff can experience, learn, and practice peace in ways our culture may not facilitate. 

This year, we are emphasizing the need for including others in our own personal journeys of peace. While peace is defined differently by each individual, Peace Circles and sharing allow us to connect with others and foster communities of hope, healing, compassion, and empathy. Peace Camp not only allows participants to explore methods of maintaining their own personal wellbeing but also shows them ways that they can be peace leaders in their world and include others on their path to peace.
​​
Peace Camp is a highly interactive experience, where campers are taught the skills needed to deal with their problems in a peaceful manner and are encouraged to create solutions to the problems they see in the world. ​Activities at camp typically included:

  • Art
  • Cooperative Games
  • Special Guests
  • Peace Building Pledge
  • Learning about peace makers and how each one of us can follow their example and spread peace
