Art of Peace Summer Camp


Posted: September 3rd, 2009

During the summer of 2009, Peaceful Schools International (PSI) hosted the Art of Peace Summer Camp for 8 – 13 year-olds. The camp offered children an opportunity to creatively explore the meaning of peace – within ourselves, in our communities and in the world. Local artists and peace activists visited and made presentations throughout the week. Children learned about peace through activities such as drama, puppetry and writing. They made solar cookers, they tie-dyed and they did some guerrilla gardening! Participants also had the opportunity to learn about global peace through learning about what life is like for children their age in Sierra Leone.

The peace camp was a huge success, and we are planning to run a similar camp in subsequent years. Stay tuned for details!
