Become a Seed


The camper selection process to attend the Seeds of Peace Camp in Maine is very competitive—many years we have a 4-5 percent acceptance rate—and varies by country.

Typically, applicants to Seeds of Peace apply through the school systems in their home country. Candidates are aged 14-16 and must demonstrate proficiency in English, as well as leadership skills and motivation, based on a written essay and a series of interviews. Most of the first year campers are chosen by the Ministries of Education or community organizations in their respective countries.

“Camp has exposed me to a side of life that is magical. It is where people can actually come together and stand side by side as humans.”
