Life Camp

July 11 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

Boys and girls ages 11 to 16 are welcome to attend! Camp activities include:

  • Shooting paintball guns at a non-human target.
  • Advocate for non-violence while leading a community wide march.
  • Express compassion by writing “Dear Shooter” letters to encourage and not condemn those who are thinking about or who have pulled the trigger.
  • Have a super-soaker water or nerf gun fight.
  • Hear from the families of victims of gun violence, caring community leaders, and former perpetrators.
  • And much more.

All camps held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Breakfast & lunch will be provided as well as all materials and equipment.

Note: The Saturday before every Life Camp, there will be a youth-led community march concluding with a Peace Smoke event.

Financial Incentive

Three youth from each camp will be awarded $100 each for demonstrating outstanding leadership!
