Someday I'm going to: Plant Seeds of Peace
Plant Seeds of Peace
This is our plan
Original plan by: Seeds of Peace
  • Step 1: Develop Key Partnerships. To fill the spots in the three and a half week camp session, we first reach out to ministries and development organizations in the Middle East and South Asia. We ask these organizations to promote the camp and assist in the selection of campers.

  • Step 2: Identify Future Ambassadors of Peace. Our goal is to have an impact with future generations, so we communicate with local school systems to identify teenagers that show leadership potential and the motivation to become future ambassadors for peace. Selecting a diverse group among the home- nations is an important part of achieving the end result; a broader perspective for all of the campers involved.

  • Step 3: Conduct Pre-Trip Orientation. Before a delegation of campers embarks on their journey to the camp in Maine, we conduct an orientation for them and their parents. We want to be sure they are psychologically prepared for the experience and demands of the camp. This also lets us start the process of building a support network for the campers and their families.

  • Step 4: Bring the Campers to Maine.The trips are all expenses paid and we arrange all of the travel details. We want to be sure to remove stress that the travel demands so the kids arrive relaxed and ready to share.

  • Step 5: Pair Kids on Opposing Sides of a Conflict.The idea behind the camp is to create a setting removed from the conflicts at home so that the campers who meet can begin to trust each other. We purposefully pair campers from conflicting nations. For insance, Israelis and Palestinians are sleep in the same bunk and sit at the same dining hall table to share meals side-by-side.

  • Step 6: Arrange Sporting and Arts Activities. As part of initating the trust-building process, we arrange team-based activities that are meant to encourage the campers to see each other as friends and teammates, instead of enemies. The art-based activities are meant to be a way for the campers to express themselves through a creative outlet.View PhotosView Photos
  • Step 7: Hold 90-minute Dialogue Sessions. These daily sessions are designed to allow the campers to confront their differences and to promote constructive, respectful dialogue about conflict in their regions. In their home-nations, it can be difficult for these teenagers to get an honest account of the other side so we strongly encourage campers to voice their opinions and feelings. At the same time, we want to be sure that a true exchange occurs so we take steps to insure that the campers are really listening to what the other side has to say.View PhotosView Photos
  • Step 8: Cultural Activity Nights. On select nights, campers are given the opportunity to showcase their traditional dress, food, music and art. This is meant to help each side gain a better understanding and appreciation for the other sides customs. In addition, we hold religious services for all religions represented so campers can participate in and learn about different faith traditions.

  • Step 9: Color Games. We split campers into two multi-national teams. The idea is to create a brand new group for the campers—Green and Blue—to substitute the national and ethnic divides that they are accusomted to. Its not uncommon to see friendships develop and solidify during each teams pursuit of a common goal. View PhotosView Photos
  • Step 10: Depart for Home. After three and a half weeks, the campers go back to their home countries. We hear story after story of how this experience leaves the campers with a new perspective, new friendships, and new ways of thinking of conflict and the ‘enemy.’ The campers are encouraged to share what learn at camp with their friends, families, and broader societies.View PhotosView Photos

What is mySomeday.com Close
mySomeday is designed to help you achieve those goals and dreams you’ve always said you’d get to ‘Someday’. It was born from a universal truth; everyone has ‘somedays’ they want to realize. It was designed to address a universal reality; life, laziness or lack of know-how makes achievement elusive. ‘Plans’ are meant to address this gap between truth and reality. Whether you build your own original Plan or copy and customize an existing Expert or Community Plan, this detailed roadmap is meant to get you from start to finish. With a Plan, you can track your progress, set reminders and deadlines, get feedback from the community and much more. In addition to Plans, we hope that all of the elements of the site and the social connections that spring up will take people from idea, to plan, to partnership, and, ultimately, to achievement.
