Peace Camp 2024 (7th Grade – 12th Grade) – Register today!

July 22 @ 9:00 am July 26 @ 3:00 pm

General information about Peace Camp Houston:

For each week, the camp runs from 9 am to 3 pm – day camp only! We plan for staff to be there by 8:30 am each day so you can drop off your children after that time. After-camp care is available if requested in advance on the registration form. For children of all ages, parents must register them in advance.

Don’t wait, as each week of Peace Camp almost always fill up! Join us in helping our youth and community become more peaceful, and to learn skills that will help them throughout life.

Peace Camp is not religious, and welcomes all children.

Tuition is just $100 for those who will be in grades 7-12 in the fall, and both full and partial scholarships are available. (It takes more staff for the younger children.) We want all children to be able to attend.

Join us for Peace Camp! With room for 25 campers in each session, yoga, drumming, cooperative games and special guests will be part of the program.
