Kids4Peace Boston is looking for Muslim, Jewish, and Christian current 6th and 7th graders to join us for 8 days of summer camp activities (swimming, boating, sports, hiking, camp fires, arts and crafts and more) on the shores of a crystal-clear lake in the mountains of New Hampshire

Who? We are looking for participants who live in the greater Boston area and are in sixth or seventh grade during the 2016-2017 school year.  Kids4Peace campers are open-minded, like to try new experiences and make new friends, and are eager to share about their lives, cultures, and religious traditions.

When? August 6 – 13, 2017 at Camp Merrowvista in Center Tuftonboro, NH

In many ways, we are like other summer camps. But we are different in a few important ways:

  • Our community is made up of more kinds of people than usually live together at camp or anywhere else. We’re from Boston and its suburbs, from different races and ethnicities, and from different religions.
  • Our campers not only learn new skills like archery or kayaking, they also learn skills for becoming peace leaders and for solving the kinds of problems that keep people in the Boston area and around the world from understanding one another. We learn all this while having fun and being active in the outdoors.
  • At the end of the camp program, our campers are invited to join our six-year Peace Leader Program that meets monthly during the school year and offers additional skill-building summer programs. In fact, at camp you’ll be spending time with 11th and 12th grade Junior Counselors who have been active in Kids4Peace since they were in sixth grade.

Kids4Peace not only exists in Boston, but also in other locations in the United States and in Jerusalem. In future summers, you’ll have the chance to try out your peace leader skills with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian peers from the Jerusalem area and the West Bank and from other American chapters too.  They, too, meet throughout the school year and in the summer to continue building their skills and have fun together.
