Isidoros Kouvelos - President of the International Olympic Academy

The Experiential and Educational program IMAGINE PEACE JUNIORS CAMP offers the unique opportunity for children & teenagers to experience and understand the meaning of Olympism through sports and the education of Olympic Values.

Olympism, as a global social philosophy, emphasizes in the role of sports in cultural development, international understanding and peaceful coexistence. A philosophy which addresses not only to the famous athletes but to all of us as well, promoting a lifestyle governed by the values of respect for diversity, excellence, peace, friendship, solidarity and fair play.

The mission of the International Olympic Academy, as the only Olympic Education Center worldwide, is to transfer these Values to the youth, in combination with the data of the modern era, to transform the children into future Ambassadors for the promotion and protection of the Olympic Ideal as well as to make Olympism a way of life through this educational process.

This educational Program, in the magical place of Ancient Olympia, connects the ancient Greek principles with the modern Olympic Movement, contributes in a substantial way to the mission and vision of DOA, inspiring young children with the timeless Values of Olympism and giving them the supplies for a better world!


Dr. Konstantinos Filis - Director of the International Olympic Truce Center

This program is a unique opportunity for young people from all over the world to socialize with each other, with the aim of promoting sports in order to strengthen equality and peace.

Its ultimate purpose is to investigate the universality and importance of Olympic Values, the "connection" of sports and peace and the highlighting of the appropriate paths, so that the meaning and implications of the Olympic Truce become part of everyday life.

Participants learn about the cultural richness of the region & the history of the Olympic Games, coexist with people of different cultures, backgrounds & ideologies and familiarize with the importance of diversity, the "special" and "unique" that all people represent. They realize that we share common concerns and dreams for a better, peaceful world.

Team spirit, ingenuity, passion, cooperation and commitment, are essential ingredients for building truce and peace against discriminations and conflicts.


Thodoris Alexas - Sailing Paralympian

In the summer of '22, I participated in this educational and fun program as a Paralympic athlete where, together with highly qualified teachers, I was able to convey to our young friends-participants, the Paralympic & Olympic values & the meaning of the Olympic Truce. By talking with them and describing my athletic journey, they were given the opportunity to understand the value of respect for diversity through disability.

I won’t forget the promise-wish I made: to be present in this historic place of the Olympic Academy premises again!


An innovative & certified top sports and cultural experience provided by major organizations, an asset in every participant's CV.
