“I deeply enjoyed the PeacemakeHers Camp last summer,” Wrote an anonymous attendee. “It was great as it helped me connect with other young women who share the same values and hold some of the same passions as me.”

“My experience with attending the 2016 PeacemakeHers was one that opened an incredibly deep well of empowerment for me,” another wrote. “I struggle with a lack of confidence and often hold [myself] back. My time at the camp reaffirmed that my path to become a Leader will be accomplished if I persevere… Thank you, NSVOW, for teaching me that I am a powerful woman too!”

Perhaps one camper had summarized the entirety of the experience: “It meant I had the space and distance from my everyday life to think deeply and critically,” she writes.

Camper Candace Tattrie had the ability to create change after attending the camp. “I had the opportunity to connect with other individuals who were working to make the world a better place,” wrote Candace. “These connections allowed me to continue to work for peace in my community, and I am working with another individual I met at the Camp to plan an event at Nocturne (a community art event in Halifax, NS) this year. The Camp also gave me the skills and opportunity to attend the United Nations as a Canadian Voice of Women for Peace delegate at the Commission on the Status of Women 2016, which has been one of the most fundamentally amazing opportunities that I have ever taken part in. I am really glad that I had the opportunity to attend the Camp and make these great connections which are allowing me to continue being a change-maker within my community.”

Just another reason to attend the camp is it gives you access to joining VOW delegates at a UN Conference!
