Hello Peacemaker Families, ! The staff, director and committee as a whole have met and discussed over and over again the best way for us to move forward with camp this year with consideration of the Covid-19 pandemic. After careful consideration and review of the community’s input, we have figured out what we will do for the 2020 camp. We will still be teaching and leading with our mission and vision in the forefront and approaching the curriculum and lesson set up with engaging fun and creativity. We will do our best to create a vibrant experience for your young peacemaker . It will be online using teleconferencing and virtual classroom platforms. There will be some minimal, optional, loose in-person connection on the land at the Friends meetinghouse during the week. The dates are still the same and the time frame will be 2, 1 and a half hour long segments in the morning with a break in between and optional lunch together, with opportunity for more time virtually if needed/wanted. There will be offline tasks and projects for families to do as well. Campers will be set up ahead of time with a “Peacemakers supply kit” left on door step or picked up by family. This will include a lot of the material things your camper will need to participate with us during the week. We look forward to having your family participate in camp this year and hope that you will help us in whatever way possible to make this a positive, memorable experience for your peacemaker. Please refer to the camper registration page to register your child for this most unique peacemakers summer camp experience.

THE THEME FOR THIS YEAR’S CAMP IS : “THE FACES OF PEACE” Who is Peace? The energy of peace within my family and friends. ALONG WITH RACIAL JUSTICE AND EQUALITY

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.

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)
