"Peace Messaging" Camp Peaceprints 2014

St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, 2253 Main Street, Buffalo 


Monday through Friday, July 14 -- 25, 2014.  9 AM to 4 PM

Announcing the seventh annual Camp Peaceprints, brought to you by the Interfaith Peace Network, the SSJ Sister Karen Klimczak Center for Nonviolence, and the WNY Peace Center. The Camp, for youth ages 8 to 13, provides exposure to a diverse community while introducing and exploring communication, social justice issues, and peaceful conflict resolution.

We learn how to cooperate, deal with feelings, and problem-solve, as well as exploring and hopefully being inspired toward Nonviolence. This year’s special focus on communication will include verbal and non-verbal elements, signing and various languages, the arts, music, movement, and spoken and written word. We'll also have wonderful guest presenters - activists and artists - from our communities. Students from St. Mary’s will be invited to join us in attending to our presenters, and in going on our weekly field trips. We’ll also play games, have recreation, do art projects, create a show, and enjoy a family pot-luck on July 24. The two-week program is $125 weekly per camper, and sliding fee/scholarships are available. Youth assistants and adult volunteers are an integral part of the program.
