Places where everyone is safe, equal, healthy and happy. What are problems in our current communities and society and in what ways can we help to combat these wrongs peacefully? All this through art, music, nature, play and mindfulness.

The mission of Peacemakers Day Camp is to promote peace and teach peacemaking skills to a diverse group of children in a safe, fun environment. We will help guide children to discover their potential as peacemakers.

Our Vision

Through play, discussion, creative arts, music, helping others, and interacting with nature, campers gain confidence in themselves as peacemakers.  Every day, campers learn and practice various skills, such as giving put-ups, building peace bridges, compromising, negotiating, using “I” messages, and sharing respect. Campers will also grow an understanding of how and why peace is important on a global scale.

Who we are

The teachers, staff, and teen counselors – most of whom are volunteers – are committed to work together to lead the campers and to respond to group and individual needs compassionately and collectively.

Founded in 1986, Milwaukee Children’s Peacemakers Day Camp is a nonsectarian program of the Milwaukee Friends Meeting (Quakers)
