The Museum's Peace Camp provides a safe space for children age 5 through 6th grade to come together and imagine a world where peace is possible.
The Dayton International Peace Museum's (DIPM) Peace Camp is in its 11th year! The children learn peace-building skills which emphasize compassionate listening, kindness, and communication with an open heart.
Activities that provide opportunities to practice peace every day with the understanding that we are all human and make mistakes. We each have the freedom to choose what we do with those experiences and we each have the capacity to make choices that help us heal, grow, and learn from those mistakes!
Each year the theme and focus is on peace building. Our goal is to teach peace-building skills that our young children- "Kids for Peace"- can apply during Peace Camp and take home with them to practice in their daily lives. Each day has a theme and "Kids Peace" lesson and a message which are interwoven throughout every component of camp.
This year's theme is "Bodies for Peace: How we can awaken the natural wisdom of our bodies to bring healing and peace to ourselves and the world?"
