Camp Peaceprints – Week 1

REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED. If you would like to join a waiting list in case we have space open up, please send an email to assistant@wnypeace.orgRegister here.

CAMP PEACEPRINTS is a summer camp designed to introduce youth to social justice, while providing them with peaceful conflict resolution skills and exposure to a broader community. It is a two-week long alternative education program for participants ages 8 – 13, with older youth serving as Youth Assistants.
Participants take weekly fieldtrips and hear from local organizers daily. The lesson plans expose them to alternatives to violence exercises, historical movements to end oppression and modern day efforts in community organizing. Music, art, theater, dance, and recreation are significant facets of the program.
Our 2023 theme will be “Healthy Lives Matter.” We will explore what personal and community health is and how to maintain it. We will consider fundamental components of health: fresh air, clean water, sunlight, mindfulness/meditation or connecting to a higher power, sleep, exercise, whole foods, and rest. We will learn how a healthy environment benefits us, other living creatures, and the earth.
We will explore justice issues around health equity that various communities face and why impoverished communities face major health challenges. Campers will learn what resources people need in order to have a healthy community. They will understand that their own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health matters in creating a healthy community.
LEARN ABOUT nonviolence, activities, community, and social change.
GET TO DO games, art projects, music, and swimming.
