Camp Peaceprints (M-F only ;-) – Alternative Day Camp

July 17, 2017 @ 10:00 am - July 28, 2017 @ 3:00 pm

“Peace Networking After 150 Years” @St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, 2253 Main Street, Buffalo; Monday through Friday, July 17 – 28, 2017 from 10 AM to 3 PM. Swimming, field trips, peaceful conflict resolution, interfaith info, communication, cooperation, more!!

Announcing the tenth annual Camp Peaceprints, brought to you by the Interfaith Peace Network, the SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center for Nonviolence, and the WNY Peace Center. The Camp, for youth ages 8 to 13, provides exposure to a diverse community while introducing and exploring communication, social justice issues, and peaceful conflict resolution.

We learn how to listen, express ourselves, cooperate, deal with feelings, and problem-solve; as well as exploring and hopefully being inspired toward Nonviolence. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Network of Religious Communities, this year will include learning about and celebrating different faith traditions and their common themes of peace, justice, sharing and love.  We’ll have wonderful guest presenters – activists and artists from the Buffalo area. Students from St. Mary’s will be invited to join us in our activities. We’ll also play games, have recreation (including swimming!), do art projects and go on field trips.

Registration is $125 per week (discount $240 for the two-week period), with sliding scale and scholarships available.

Youth assistants and adult volunteers are an integral part of the program.
