The Leadership Camp at Acer Farm brings together young American, Israeli, and Palestinian teens with the focus of creating a new generation of peace builders in the world. The camp takes place over the course of two weeks in Brattleboro, VT at Acer Farm. The campers participate in intensive Leadership and Peace building activities and instruction. The youth also engage in dialogue and discussion sessions about their views and opinions towards peace in the Holy Land.
Our unique program aims to change the trajectory of twelve campers’ lives. Our goals are threefold:
To develop greater responsibility, initiative, self-expression, communal awareness and good will in each individual.
To deepen personal, national, and religious connections between American, Israeli, and Palestinian youth.
To strengthen the campers personally, intellectually, and spiritually to be effective leaders and peacemakers for a positive future beyond the status quo.
