In a supportive and fun-filled environment, the Peace Camp at
Gwynedd Friends helps campers find peace within themselves so that they
are able to contribute to peaceful environments at home, at school,
and with friends.

Campers can experience Kid Power by learning to express their emotions, understand other points of view, usewords to solve problems, celebrate differences and practice peacemaking. There will be a great variety of active cooperative games, arts and crafts, music, creative problem solving and service projects to choose from.

My daughter was really worried about doing something new
but she LOVES it! Thank you!!

Team building skills are important at Peace Camp, and children can learn
through games to work together, overcome obstacles and reach goals
through cooperation.

The camp is held at historic Gwynedd Friends (Quaker) Meeting. Outdoor activities, such as games and playground time, will be offered. Large, bright indoor areas are also used for activities. Gwynedd Friends is conveniently located at the intersection of Route 202 and Sumneytown Pike in Gwynedd, Pennsylvania.

I believe Peace Camp has been a place for my grandson to be reflective
and heal from family issues. ~ (2016 Grandparent)

The camp day runs from 9am - 3pm (with drop off between 8:30 - 9am). Children bring their own lunch; snacks are provided by the camp.

Extended day care is available until 5pm for $80 per week or $20 per day, and
snacks/activities will be provided during after-camp care.

I can’t thank you enough Peace Camp
for everything that you have done.
This camp is so special and one of a kind.
The Staff are always so kind and beautiful.
My daughter and I are so blessed to have the Peace Camp around!
We love you and will miss you dearly!
P.S. Kelsey is amazing! All staff really.
