The Halton Interfaith Peace Camp is a week-long day camp offered to students in grades 1 to 8 and teen counselors in grades 9 to 12 across Halton Region. Along with visits to various houses of worship, participants will engage in arts, crafts, games, and learning. The campers and staff will build friendships and understanding with peers from all faith traditions.
We tend to think of camp as one thing: sleepaway, campfires, smores. Of course, there are many different camps, and while fun is an aspect of all of them, there are other purposes as well. The Halton Interfaith Peace Camp, clearly, has a unique and absolutely compelling purpose: gather kids together to have fun while celebrating their differences and understanding their similarities. The camp session offers a unique and valuable perspective on the surrounding community and the campers’ places within it.
