Amid the turmoil, pain, and violence around us: all 129 of our Palestinian and Israeli youth and staff will participating in Kids4Peace camps this summer.

Kids4Peace camps are part of a six-year year-round program of interfaith dialogue, leadership development and nonviolent action. Youth from Jerusalem and the neighboring areas of the West Bank meet new friends from North America for a two-week summer program, where they learn about each other’s religious traditions, practice dialogue and conflict resolution, develop skills to be peacemakers and form lasting friendships across the barriers that divide their communities.

Quotes

“I feel happy for real, for the first time in weeks. The kids are so excited. You don’t feel any anger between them now just excitement and relief. We are on the plane and feel so ready to fly and start camp already.” -Reeham Subhi, Kids4Peace Jerusalem Co-Director of Education

“I still go to camp to show the world that it is possible to have Palestinians and Israelis in the same room without hating each other.” – Adan, age 14

“I still go to camp to prove that Israelis and Palestinians, Muslims, Christians and Jews can coexist and get together and talk about what they are feeling. We get together to talk, listen, respect and above all – try to understand each other.” -Emmanuel, age 15
