This camp, I think, was very successful. I’d love to join this camp again.

Summer Camp 2018 General Score: 9.2/10 (assessed by campers)

Peace Winds Junior Global Citizens Summer Camp is a residential summer camp tailor-made for passionate and curious youth (ages 12-18) to discover, study and grow with peers from different backgrounds from all over the world.

We will assist our participants in becoming valuable global citizens with vision, knowledge and leadership skills by presenting existing global issues through diverse and unique insights. Those qualities will help them steer and navigate their own future, as well as to initiate transformational changes in societies. Among other youth with diverse backgrounds, the participants will learn about new perspectives and values, and how to identify and solve social issues.

After the camp, our participants will be equipped with an even greater interest and understanding of different social issues. The camp aims to assist the participants to become more passionate in doing good for the others, and to be able to present creative solutions that make the world a better place.
