Smyrna UCC Peace Camp

A week-long summer day camp for the children of the community

Peace Camp


Peace Camp is a multicultural camp with the mission to provide a fun, educational environment in which children can learn messages and practices of nonviolence and peacemaking. Each year the theme changes.  In 2018, our theme was “Let Peace Begin with Me,”.  We have lessons, music, yoga and art each day.

Children will learn about the practice of peacemaking, by learning practical techniques to deal with conflict and violence in around them. These techniques for peacemaking include nonviolent conflict resolution, physical and mental practices such as mindfulness and yoga, the arts, nature studies, and media literacy.


These experiences will be developmentally appropriate for the ages and will model a deep respect for cultural, social and religious diversity.


We celebrate that our children are nurtured by any traditions and welcome this opportunity to learn from each other in order to create a more peaceful and tolerant world, where everyone feels like they have a sense of belonging.
