This summer, Peaceful Schools International is again hosting the Art of Peace Summer Camp for 8 – 13 year-olds. The camp, offered for the first time in 2009, provides children with 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 will make presentations throughout the camp. Children will learn about peace through activities such as drama, puppetry, tie-dye, and writing. Participants also have the opportunity to learn about global peace through learning about what life is like for children their age in Sierra Leone and Pakistan.
"The peace camp experience was wonderful for our daughters Hannah (age 10) and Claire (age 9). The staff were committed and caring, and created an environment that allowed for Hannah and Claire to broaden and deepen their understanding of peace, co-operation, and environmental awareness while all the time having fun with new friends. They’ll be back next year for sure!."
– Peter James (parent)
In 2010, the peace camp will run August 16-20 at Saint Mary’s University. For more information, please see our camp information page.
