About the Summer Camp

The UNESCO Center for Peace Summer Camp program in the Washington, DC metro area, gathers together the best and the brightest young minds from around the globe. Over the course of two weeks, our student-delegates learn from their peers about other cultures, societies and perspectives, and also share their own unique views.They undertake workshops on global inequality, cultural diversity and conflict mediation, listen to diplomats and go on field trips to important landmarks in the DC metro area and New York City. We also give training sessions on how to apply to US schools, taking the SATs and placement exams, finding the right school and applying for the right scholarships, and discussions on how to be peace builders in their societies.

Over the last ten years, our IMUN Summer camp has become one-of-a-kind intellectual and social conference gathering the best and the brightest young minds from around the globe in the Washington, DC metro area.
