Take Action - Support and Encourage Peace Camps
Peace Camp is an alternative day camp experience which fosters an understanding of peace, justice, and environmental awareness through an anti-bias perspective appropriate to the needs of the children and youth involved. Campers learn tools to help create a cohesive social community; respect for self, others, and the environment are explored and practiced through the development of concepts. The Peace Camp program weaves together activities which promote the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to advocate for a peaceful world, all while having fun and making friends. The issues which arise from the camp community itself are developed and integrated into the program. Our Staff and Youth Leaders bring to the table a variety of backgrounds and experiences, each with a passion for making the world a better place. By learning to use the diverse skills, traits and qualities of each person, we have developed Peace Camp into a life-changing experience for campers, youth leaders, staff, parents, and the community.
“On the journey for social justice advocacy, the Peace Camp community strives to inspire local and global change. We have planted trees, provided clothing and support for homeless children, and cleaned up natural environments. Peace Camp is truly an experience unlike any other, one in which campers and youth leaders alike are able to explore their own passions to become an activist for change and make the world a better place.
