Contact K4PB Camp Director Megan Hopkins, megan@kids4peaceboston, for details about an upcoming information session.
Kids4Peace Boston is looking for Muslim, Jewish, and Christian current 6th and 7th graders to join us for 8 days of summer camp fun (swimming, boating, sports, hiking, arts and crafts and more) on the shores of a crystal-clear lake in the mountains of New Hampshire.
Who? We are looking for youth who live in the greater Boston area and are in the 6th or 7th grade during the 2017-2018 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 5 – 12, 2018 at Camp Merrowvista in Center Tuftonboro, NH
In many ways, Kids4Peace camp is like other summer camps. But it is different in a few important ways:
- Our community is made up of more kinds of people than those who usually live together at camp or anywhere else. We’re from Boston and its suburbs, from different races, ethnicities, backgrounds, and 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, campers are invited to join the Kids4Peace Boston Peace Leader Program (for 7th – 12th graders) that meets monthly during the school year and offers additional skill-building summer programs. In fact, at camp you’ll spend time with 11th and 12th grade Counselors-in-Training who have been active in Kids4Peace since they were in 6th grade. You can find more information about the Peace Leader School Year Program here.
Kids4Peace not only exists in Boston, but also in other locations in the United States and in Jerusalem. In future summers, high school participants have the opportunity to take part in summer peace-building programs with Israeli and Palestinian peers, as well as with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian youth from other American cities.
