Amid the turmoil, pain, and violence around us: we have just learned that ALL of our Palestinian and Israeli youth and staff will be able to participate in Kids4Peace camps this summer.

Participants include 99 youth, 8 counselors, 22 adult staff, joining their counterparts from America.  They will attend summer camps in Seattle, Houston, Vermont and New Hampshire during the month of August.

Kids4Peace camps are part of a six-year year-round program of interfaith dialogue, leadership development and nonviolent action. Youth from Jerusalem and the neighboring areas of the West Bank meet new friends from North America for a two-week summer program, where they learn about each other’s religious traditions, practice dialogue and conflict resolution, develop skills to be peacemakers and form lasting friendships across the barriers that divide their communities.

 

Follow Facebook and Twitter (@Kids4Peace) for daily updates from camp.  Learn more at http://www.k4p.org. Thanks to our community of partners around the world whose prayers and financial support make this possible.
