Welcome to Camp PEACE
“Unless we teach our children peace, someone else will teach them violence.”
–Colman McCarthy (Peace Educator and Activist)
The mission of Camp PEACE is to bring children exposed to domestic violence together for a summer of activities that facilitate Peace Education, Action, Compassion and Empathy. Based on principles of Peace Education and Cognitively-Based Compassion Training, Camp PEACE will help children learn alternatives to violence while promoting tolerance, impartiality, affection, self-compassion and compassion for others.

2022 Camp Session | June 6 - July 29
Monday- Friday 8:00am-5:00pm
Our eight-week summer camp session is limited to 50 campers, ages 5-14. Campers will be provided with all supplies, meals and snacks and transportation for field trips. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the camp site.
The camp curriculum is derived in part from Emory University's Social, Emotional and Ethical Learning (SEE Learning). SEE Learning builds upon the best practices in social-emotional learning programs, but also expands on them by drawing in new developments based on the latest knowledge in educational practice and scientific research. It includes important new topics such as attention training, the cultivation of compassion for self and others, resiliency skills based on trauma-informed care, systems thinking, and ethical discernment. Our services also incorporate the Community Resiliency Model®, the goal of which is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.
