Seeds of Peace camp in Otisfield was founded by John Wallach, a New Yorker, six
Seeds of Peace camp in Otisfield was founded by John Wallach, a New Yorker, six years ago. The camp has hosted teens from the divided Middle East as well as such political enemies as the Turks and Greeks, Bosnians and Serbs. One hundred and sixty one kids from 2200 applicants came to the camp this summer, with the goal of humanizing conflict and breaking cycles of violence. Maine resident Tim Wilson serves as the camp director, and facilitators with backgrounds ranging from law to theater hold the most tumultuous jobs in the camp, working to change the opinions of campers about those they have grown up believing to be the enemy.
