Started in 2002, Peace Camp is a day camp for children ages K through 5th grade. Each week-long session is held at a different location throughout the Houston metro area. Peace Camp is not religious and welcomes all children. Tuition is just $185 and both full and partial scholarships are available. We want all children to be able to attend.
Join us for Peace Camp! With room for 30 campers, yoga, drumming, puppets, cooperative games and special guests will be part of the program.
Peace Camp Program for Teens
Earn volunteer credit for assisting children and adults by helping with crafts, reading to kids, presenting skits, gardening, and other fun activities. There will also be age appropriate special guests and a book study for 13-18 year olds. We can promise an interesting, meaningful experience! Tuition is sliding scale based on the ability to pay. We are a small non-profit, but we need to cover expenses for their T-shirts, books, etc. Donations from the families of teens are appreciated but there is not a participation fee.
All ages must apply. Please see the registration page for more information. Join us in helping our youth and community become more peaceful.
