• 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. And 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 (7th - 12th grade) peace leader program that meets monthly during the school year and has additional summer programs. In fact, at camp you’ll be spending time with 11th and 12th grade "junior counselors" who have been active in Kids4Peace Boston since they were in sixth grade.
• Kids4Peace not only exists in Boston, but also in other locations in the United States, and there is Kids4Peace in Jerusalem. In future summers, you’ll have the chance to try out your peace leader skills with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian teens from the Jerusalem area and the West Bank. They, too, meet throughout the school year and in the summer to continue building their skills and have fun together.

In the spring, we have two pre-camp meetings (Sunday, April 9 and Sunday, May 7), so you and your child can meet the other participants and their families and learn about this summer’s camp and Kids4Peace Boston programs.
A limited number of scholarships are available. Families will be asked to provide financial and other information to apply for a scholarship or reduced tuition. We ask all families to make a personally-significant contribution toward that amount and participate in a Kids4Peace Boston fundraising initiative to help off-set the balance. A deposit is due on acceptance and the balance is due by June 1, 2016.
