The Art of Peace Summer Camp is back
We are happy to announce that Peaceful Schools International in partnership with Saint Mary’s University is hosting the Art of Peace Summer Camp for 8 – 13 year-olds from July 25 – 29. The camp will be held on campus at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, NS.
This camp will offer children an opportunity to creatively explore the meaning of peace – within ourselves, in our communities and in the world. Local artists and peace activists will visit and make presentations throughout the week. It will be an exciting week of art, drama, puppetry, writing, yoga, solar cooking, dance, tie-dyeing and more.
Peaceful Schools International (PSI) supports schools around the world that have made a commitment to creating and maintaining a culture of peace. PSI acts as a catalyst and clearinghouse for innovative ideas that help build an environment where everyone feels safe, respected and valued.
Working with school communities – educators, students and parents – PSI provides resources and encourages schools to develop their own peace plans and activities. PSI is not a top-down organization. We believe each school’s journey to creating a culture of peace is unique, and offer guidelines rather than strict membership criteria.
One of the strengths of PSI is our adaptability. We work with schools, taking their unique visions, circumstances and timelines into account, and help them create and maintain a peaceful environment.
PSI is a registered Canadian charitable organization dedicated to building a global network of peaceful schools…350 in 16 countries and counting.
